Wednesday ALNS Class
If members are unable to arrive on time on Wednesday for setup, 7.30pm (in your Gi) then we may need to consider putting back the start time of the class to 8.00pm which will mean you lose 15 minutes of training time on a Wednesday. There is a lot of setup on Wednesday and it is too much for Garry, Roger and Dee and sometimes one or two others to do on their own, which is now frequently happening. We will monitor the sitiuation for the next couple of weeks and make a decision. The choice is yours! Thank you for your support.

Grading 13th/15th October
Over the next 2 weeks we shall be giving out Grading Invitation letters to those we feel may be ready in time for the grading weekend 13th/15th October. The dates has been available for a year so you should all be keeping the dates free (where possible) whether you feel you will be asked to grade or not. Black/Coloured belts please note it is important for you support the grading weekend (there are only 2 per year!), as Uke's are required for those testing and this is a team effort. If you are not grading this time you will need a partner for your grading so please make the effort to support those that are. Thank you everyone. Osu!

Training Fees
Please remember that your monthly training fees only cover the cost of your insurance, membership to the British Aikido Board, hall hire and equipment/running costs. All instructors are volunteers, with their own work and family commitments, and receive NO payment at all for their time or travel. Please respect this when attending classes and remember that you are not "buying" your instructors time they are freely giving their time as volunteers in order to teach you Aikido and help you become fitter and healthier at the same time. They only ask that you come to classes as often as you are able with a positive attitude to your training. Osu!
