Genryukan Training session

Here are some pictures taken last monday.

It was very nice to see everybody in Gis, getting in the spirit of aikido.
Despite being composed of only beginners (3rd proper lesson), some really good techniques are already showing through.

Well done guys, please carry on like this!


First night is a success!

The first training session at Genryukan Aikido proved to be a great success.
Despite some initial teething problems with the venue, the lesson went smoothly thanks to the support of the student from Gowaryu & Katsujinken Aikido.

The feedback from the beginners was excellent and this session was an great start for the club!

Thanks to all the students who came to support us tonight, and well done to all the beginners who performed extremely well.


Genryukan starts training!
