The Uk Tour begins tomorrow…

It’s finally here, tomorrow morning, sees the beginning of a brilliant and promising seminar in Dartford, an excellent collaboration between two phenomenal martial artists, Robert Mustard and Toby Threadgill. This will be the second weekend long seminar that brings together these two martial artists, the last was last year, and it was so successful that we are up approximately 35% on sign ups for the event.

It is really difficult to describe the event, what brings together a Yoshinkan Aikido instructor and a Takamura-ha Shindo Yoshin Ryu instructor on the same mat at the same event?

Well, last year, it was a success, the mix worked really well and the outcome was truely impressive. It is easy to ignore such an event if you don’t practice either martial art, however, the attendance last year were from all walks, Karate, Jyu-jitsu, Judo along with the usual Aikidoka and TYSR students.

This year I expect it’ll be much the same.

As the week goes on, Mustard sensei will be visiting different dojo’s around the country culminating in a weekend long Gasshuku next week.

I just can’t wait.

About Aikido Yoshinkai Exeter

I run a small dojo of Yoshinkan Aikido in Exeter, Devon in the UK. The dojo started in Exeter in Jan 2013. There are a couple of Dojos in Exeter that train in Aikido, but we are the only Yoshinkan Aikido dojo in the area. The name of the dojo is Aikido Yoshinkai Exeter, and my instructor in Robert Mustard sensei. My experience in Martial Arts is exclusive to Yoshinkan Aikido in which I have trained for over 8 years now. I have traveled near and far to train and to date I continue to do so. I have had the honour of training with a few remarkable martial artists. I have also trained with Joe Thambu shihan (7th Dan) on many seminars over the past 7 years for whom I hold great admiration for his skill. In the UK we are fortunate to have instructors visiting regularly, Payet shihan (7th Dan), Ando shihan (7th Dan) and Takeno shihan (9th dan). Our club is closely linked with other Yoshinkan Dojo's in the UK and maintain friendly relations with them. email: twitter: @aikidoexeter
