Owen Barnes RoomAs of Monday 14th June 2010 the Fudokai Aikido Dojo will be moving to a new permanent venue at the Owen Barnes Room in Breckland Rd., Costessey.

After years of training in a sports hall shared with badminton players it will be a pleasant change to have a room to ourselves in peace and quiet.

I had this link passed on to me by a fellow aikido instructor. I already knew of the marathon monks, having read John Stevens book but it's interesting to see the video report on them. Follow this link to see a brief documentary about the marathon monks on YouTube.

The Shobu Aikido Annual Membership fees have gone up in July. They've been static for over 5 years so it's not an unbearable increase.

I've finally got around to implementing the new web site layout and here it is.

I spent ages trying to get Microsoft's awful IE web-browser to handle images as bullets in lists and finally gave up in disgust and left IE just showing the standard disc. This means that IE user will NOT see the site as it was meant to be - I've got better things to do with my life than to try and work around Microsoft's bugs.

If you are stuck with being Microsoft user, please, please download a real standards-compliant web browser such as Firefox (http://www.mozilla.org) or Opera (http://www.opera.com) and just use IE to keep your system patched.
