Previous Courses


July 2013


Phil couldn't attend in fact - so Jeff Balmer (2nd Dan Aikikai) took his place and taught the Saturday afternoon sesson.



July 2012



This was the first 'joint 4th Dan' course with Phil Rozier and Rick Smaridge in Devon, the first since the South Devon Aikikai was established earlier in the year.


People travelled from many places to train here for this course.  There are photographs of the course on Facebook - on the South Devon Aikikai page:
