Heads up: We will be on a break from Wednesday July 18 to Wed July 25. Back on Monday July 30.
Creative media designer Tania de Gerlache De Gomery has made some beautiful designs for a banner and for our online sites. Enjoy.
Aikido Katokan is closed next week, so no classes Monday Feb 12 or Wednesday Feb 14. We resume on Monday Feb 19.
Because Benedetti sensei is in town taking a weapons class at St Pauls Sports Centre next Monday night 29 January we will not have normal class at MyGym. Further details in the earlier post. See you there.
We uploaded some video of practice with the Jou (staff). Jou dosa or jou mochi nage waza (techniques) for throwing an unarmed partner, and jou suburi (free practice) can be found on our Facebook page, @aikidokatokanbristol.
Stéphane Benedetti sensei will teach in Bristol at the end of January 2018.
Benedetti sensei is an Aikikai Shihan and co-director of our association, the Mutokukai. He is giving classes at Furo Ryu Aikido in Bath and Fudoshin Aikido Cardiff before conducting a weapons class on Monday Jan 29th at 7-9 pm at the St Pauls Community Sports Academy. Visitors welcome.

We are all done for 2017. Practice resumes Wednesday January 3rd in the Studio upstairs at MyGym. Have a happy and safe New Year.
