The 4th edition of the South Of The River seminar took place this weekend at the SAGA Pavilion in Sandgate, Kent. It was organised by Genryukan Aikido with the invaluable help of Gowaryu Aikido and Hassou Aikido.

There was an excellent atmosphere throughout, people having fun practicing. We had the pleasure to have Shaun Hoddy, Paul Bonett, Bob Jones and Ken Broome who gave their time and knowledge freely.

The SOTR is British Aikido Association event held in profit of the “Saga Respite for Carers Trust”. In the UK today there are more than six million people looking after a family member, partner or friend, often isolated and unsupported. The Saga Respite for Carers Trust was launched to help carers aged 50 and over by providing a much needed holiday for the carer and a friend.

There was also a BAA grading taking place on the Saturday, and our students did brilliantly. Geoffrey Harris was promoted to 4th kyu (orange belt), whilst Yvette Marshall and Tony Dowling were promoted to 1st kyu (brown belt).

The club is 4 years old today! Big thank you to everybody for your help and looking forward to many more sessiosn and learning (and a bit of fun every now and then too).

I’ve learned a lot since the club has been going, not only from my colleagues and the great guest instructors who’ve been visiting us, but also from the students, past and present. I feel lucky to have such a good bunch of people training with us, and proud of the progress I’ve seen. Let’s keep it up, we all still have a lot more to learn!

“Shoshin” all the way!
