San Dan (3rd Dan Black Belt) Iwama Shin Shin Aiki Shurenkai
I started training in Martial arts in 1989 then started Aikido in 1997 During this time I have travelled to Iwama, Japan on many 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.
