San Dan (3rd) Iwama Shin Shin Aiki Shurenkai
I have been training in the Martial arts for 28 years, with the last 21 years being dedicated to Aikido. During this time I have travelled to Iwama, Japan on 4 separate occasions to study Aikido full time as a live in Student of my teacher, Hitohira Saito Sensei.
My visits have varied from 6 months to 1 month, which has allowed to me to immerse myself in the Art of Aikido for long periods of time
I continue to train and teach in Edinburgh, Scotland and I try to attend European seminars with my teacher as often as possible. I also study other Martial Arts, particularly Brazilian Jujitsu which allows me to understand other ideas within the Martial arts.
