NEW CUA AIKIDO UNION WEBSITE
I am very pleased to announce the CUA Aikido Union has now a new website you can reach it by typing www.cuaaikido.com or visit the links page. A very good site in my view.
1957 - 2007!
September 4th this coming year, 2007, will be fifty years treading the mats in many a Dojo. I am NOT going to have any massive celebrations only a small party with some of my friends and people I have known over the years gone by. I will share my thoughts on fifty years of martial arts on a link when I find time to write it.
1967 - 2007!
Another year of celebration is due to Sensei, Jon Harding (5th Dan) he is senior instructor for CUA and Shin-Gi-Tai Aikido Society. He like me is celebrating 40 years training in Aikido. I first really met Jon last year at the New Milton two day Course. He is in my humble opinion one of the best Aikido Sensei teaching in this country. I found it both a pleasure to learn from his vast store of knowledge and I hope that I can truly count myself as his friend. I hope to interview him later in the year and will post a report including some photographs.
