Gradings, last session next week

Congratulations to James Davis who passed an excellent 5th kyu grading yesterday!

Regretfully, next week is the last regular session at Crawley Aikikai.

We will continue to use the dojo for seminars, but there will be no more Tuesday sessions due to commitments outside of Aikido affecting teacher attendance.

For those who wish to continue training with us, our efforts will be focused on sister club Brighton Aikikai. It’s a bit further away, but with more weekly sessions and a stronger core of students and teachers it should make up for the loss of Crawley.

Sincere thanks to all Crawley Aikikai students who made the sessions what they were over the years. We hope you’ll join us in Brighton. :)

Tonights practice cancelled due to weather

With wet roads and icy temperatures forecast for this evening we’ve decided it would be sensible to cancel practice tonight.
