Bugeishi Aikido

News in brief

There have been 2 gradings recently: Alistair achieved his Yellow Belt at the Broadstone Dojo on 13th March and Anthony achieved his Orange Belt at the South Ruislip Dojo on 29th March 2018. Congratulation to you both! These gradings and more can be found on our YouTube channel.        

I’m sure I can speak for everybody in saying our thoughts and wishes are with Marek during his recovery from surgery. While Marek is off the mat, Nick will be covering both the Friday classes at Perivale.

Tim and Ranny have become parents to Morgan and I’m sure everyone will join me in congratulating them and wishing them all the best in the years ahead.

Our parent organisation is Zanshin Ryu Aikido and it is well worth taking a look at their upgraded website and also the first quarter's newsletter.

The next Sunday Course is in Coventry on the 27th May 2018. As always, I actively encourage everyone to attend. Most questions about location, cost and format are answered on our Courses page. If your question isn't covered on that page then please feel free to give me a call or drop me a line and I will answer as best as I can.

The hall at South Ruislip is a Polling Station and due to the Local Elections there will be no training on Thursday 3rd May, 2018.

All members who train at South Ruislip are warmly invited to the SRCA AGM on 11th May 19, 2018 at 7pm. The formal part of the AGM is followed by a social gathering where you have the opportunity to meet members of the other groups we share the space with.
