Congratulations - Kenshinkai Adults
Congratulations to Adam, Rowan and Andy on passing your Kenshinkai Aikido Yoshinkan kyu grading this morning (2 hours testing in total). You did very well to be selected and even better to pass with high scores reflecting your strong basics and technical knowledge. We are very strict with gradings and only 3 were selected this time. For those that were not selected, keep training hard and hopefully next time!

Thank You
Thank you to Darren, Paul and Andrzej for supporting the Adult Kyu grading, when you were not testing yourselves. This shows a good level of respect and team attitude and is recognised and considered by the club instructors, when you are hoping to be selected for your next grading.

Training Fees
Please remember that your monthly training fees only cover the cost of your insurance, membership to the British Aikido Board, hall hire and equipment/running costs. All instructors are volunteers, with their own work and family commitments, and receive NO payment at all for their time or travel. Please respect this when attending classes and remember that you are not "buying" your instructors time they are freely giving their time as volunteers in order to teach you Aikido and help you become fitter and healthier at the same time. They only ask that you come to classes as often as you are able with a positive attitude to your training. Osu!
