Sensei John Russell Teaching
We are very lucky to have the President of the Shudokan Institute of Aikido International teaching at the Dojo on Thursday 16th, all evening adult classes, and Fri 17, the adult daytime class and adult evening classes. Sensei John Russell is ranked 7th Dan and was one of Soke Strattons very first students in the UK. Please show your support and lets have lots of people on the mat for those classes.

See you on the mat
