A big congratulations to Neil, after a good years Aikido training he made 6th Kyu grade on Monday nights class at The Boiler House, Birchwood. It is such a pleasure to see adults get to grips with the Aikido syllabus and pick up a good deal of Japanese language at the same time. Neil’s martial background comes from Tae Kwon Do, but after a time off the mat decided to have a change of emphasis into Aikido. Its been a fun yet challenging journey and from Neils feedback a very rewarding one. There is so much out there to learn its a wonderful thing when one continues to study.
Here is your chance to see the blue belt test on you tube. It takes between two and three months training to get to grips with these forms, and then you are ready for your first test. Good Luck! Green belt moves are also available on youtube Eiryukan channel.
