Train At Your Own Pace!
Please remember that training is at your own pace! If you find something during the warm-up/training difficult to do, due to health or physical conditions then don't do it! Members are constantly advised to work at their own pace and skip anything they feel unable to do, however many chose to ignore this advice, over-estimating their abilities. It is better to train/work-out at a slower pace than not train/work-out at all!

Celebration Seminar - 10th June
Not long until this event on Sunday 10th June. We have had a couple of members indicate they are now not able to attend. This is VERY disappointing. The date was issued over 6 months ago and the least attendees could do is to keep their diary free if they have registered for this event. Registration has been closed, meaning that anybody now not attending has taken the place of someone who maybe missed a chance to register before maximum numbers were met. We thank all those that will be attending. It is a single day to recognise many years of dedication from Kenshinkai Instructors and we really look forward to seeing you all there for some excellent Yoshinkan Aikido training. Osu.

Assistance for Junior Classes
Please remember that any adult member ranked 4th Kyu + can offer to assist with the junior classes. No previous experience needed as you will be mentored (DBS check will need to be done). You do not need to attend every junior class but when you do attend you need to be there in time to assist with putting out the mats (Sunday 9.30am, Friday 6.30pm). Sensei Richard and Dee do not have the luxury of missing any classes whether through sickness, holiday, injury due to the current lack of assistance with the junior classes. So if you feel you can give up some time to help shape the next generation please have a chat with Sensei Richard. Osu!
