SOTR 2012 weekend

SOTR 2012

This weekend, the 3rd edition of the South Of The River seminar took place at the SAGA Pavilion in Sandgate, Kent.

We were lucky to have an excellent line up of instructors: Yoshiomi Inoue, Ken Broome, Shaun Hoddy, Harvey Goodman, Mick Pratt and Danielle Jones. We were also honoured to have a visit from Tetsu Ehara Shihan.

The atmosphere was very friendly as all the students were keen to practice new techniques. The different approaches from the various senseis made this weekend very interesting, whether you were a beginner or an experience practitioner. It really gave everybody something to think about and work on. I wouldn’t know where to start to resume the lessons, so if you missed it this year, look out for the next one!

It was also an excellent opportunity to practice with aikidokas who came all the way from Ireland, Belgium and Holland. Even the juniors had a good time with a tanto taisabaki and open kata competition. I was impressed by their sustained attention and performance.

The whole event was a fundraising event, with all the profits going to SAGA Charity.  We will let you know the results soon.

Anyway, a big thank you to everybody who gave their time and money and made this weekend a successful event.
