Eiryukan Aikido Christmas Event ! 2012 !

Wow ! Well you get the idea ! It was big ! Full of energy and excitement to show a years worth of practice, progress and skill. We could only just squeeze every one into this great picture :) Thank you for coming along and taking part. I am Totally proud of you all. Congratulations to all the best of belt categories, you were the bomb ! Every belt grade stood tall and showed off their moves, while Sensei Nev, Sensei Dan and Sensei Louis graded the performances. The brown belt sections all rolled out ji yu waza, free style demonstrations. Topped off with Sensei Demos. Everyone chomped away on delicious snacks and took away some great memorabilia goodies ! 2012 has been awesome, I guarantee 2013 is going to more spectacular, superb and sublime. Watch this space. Classes kick off on the 7th of January. Happy Holidays !

New Year, New Activity, New Aikido Stance

Wow ! 2012 has been a blast of fun and action at Eiryukan. Whether it was on the mat or off we have had lots of fun training together. We hope that 2013 brings lots of new people to the mat and lots of new learning experience for all students. If you havent tried a martial art before, the new year and Aikido are the perfect starting point. We love beginners and the spirit they bring, so get up and go for it, bang on that white belt and polish your spirit till it shines bright ! For existing students the Christmas party is going to be awesome on the 23rd, at The Ark, Will you be the best of your belt category ? We are looking towards 2014, when Japan is on the horizon so keep saving and training well so you can impress Ando Sensei in Tokyo. We plan to join forces with the Shoshinkan in Nottingham in 2013, making regular visits to their dojo on weekends and working towards appearing at the 2nd Shoshinkan Annual Demonstration which is going to be even bigger and better than the excellent 1st year we attended a couple of weeks ago. The high school classes of Branston, R.P and N.K are set to grow and grow so watch out for more stories on the progress their. Check us out in The Branston Snoop.

We are looking at adding a morning slot at the new Deans Sports Centre at Lincs Collge, so take advantage of the great facilities there. Feel free to send us any martial arts related stories you have, we are always ready for feedback too. Have a warm Christmas and New Year Season. Best Wishes, Sensei Nev
