London Aikido Dojo - Senior Grading

We are having a club grading on Sunday 24th November 2013. It is open to all club members who are eligible to grade up to and including brown belt (1st Kyu).

If you are interested in grading on this date please make sure that you have the required syllabus, minimum required hours and current membership.

Please check the individual learning plans and grading syllabus for your grade either at the club or download it from the website.

You should be working towards what is required for your level.

There is a regular open grading practice session running on Mondays from 8.30pm - 10pm which will allow students to practice anything they need for the grading and Tony will be available to offer advice if needed.

The main classes will run throughout the week and we will continue to deliver Aikido classes at our two venues where you will also get chance to practice as well.

Good luck with preparing over the coming weeks.

London Aikido Dojo - New Schedule

Were back......

Tuesday night sessions started back tonight after the summber break

Not only are we back but we added not one but two sessions

7pm session is being taught by our Yoshinkan instructor

Pete has changed his Monday night session to Tuesday night at 8:30pm

I am now teaching Pete's Monday night session at a slightly early time of 8pm

The new class line up is as follows:

  • Monday 6:45pm - 7:45pm - Aiki-Kids
  • Monday 8pm - 9:30pm - Adults
  • Tuesady 7pm - 8:30pm - Adults
  • Tuesday 8:30pm - 9:30pm - Adults
  • Wednesday 6:45pm - 7:45pm - Aiki-Kids
  • Wednesday 8pm - 9:30pm - Adults
  • Thursday 7pm - 8:30 pm - Adults
  • Thursday 8:30 - 10pm - Adults

I visited Rotherhithe Dojo, and having practised here many times before, I hoped to have a pretty good idea was what I was in for. Firstly, Sensei Tony Evangelou has an immediate presence, very likable, and it is evident he enjoys his aikido. This is certainly shown via by the students, in their attitudes too. Also I know Sensei Tony runs a children's class too, where they seem to have a lot of fun. (It was at such a class when I suffered my worst injury in Aikido, not falling awkwardly from a Kotegaeshi flip, or badly avoiding a jo attack, but when being chased by a boy who was 'it', during Bulldog, and falling off the mat and twisting my ankle.)

Practicing techniques, there is a noticeable difference without the Ki emphasis found outside Tomiki Aikido. I cannot presume to be in a position to say one style is better than another, but I did find it hard to adjust.

We are all preparing for our bi-yearly club grading in May and we have an open hour for grading practice on Mondays from 7:30 to 8:30.

This is not a class but more training session in which you turn up and have run through what you need with a partner.

I will there to help out and give advice but not to teach for the whole hour.

If your interested then let the other students know and turn with a partner or take a chance on seeing who else is on the mat.

Remember the grading is only 2 weeks away so try to make it along to as many classes as you need.
