I've been an aikidoka of Shodokan Aikido in the South of England for about 2 years now and was wondering if there where many other Aikidokas or any forms of aikido around on TSR? And if there are some, what Kyu/Dan are you guys, where do you practice, and what's your style of aikido?
Also if any of you go to any competitions around the UK or even the world, how have your done in these, got any good stories to share, feel free to share!
I'll start off with:
I'm 17 years old, and 5th Kyu (Yellow belt) in Shodokan aikido. I haven't gone to any events yet, but am hoping to go to some this summer holiday, and I'd hope that I could do well in some kinda of randori as I am 6'6" (200cm) tall, which tends to give me quite the reach on my strikes!
Half of the top 10 aren't even RG...
