Aikido' outside Great Britain's oldest dojo at Leicester's Secular

Eternally grateful for the batsman who's shot broke my nose!
For the past 28
years, I have been privileged and fortunate enough to be trained by
Sensei Conroy, the finest instructor I have come across.
I have also had the
opportunity to train with and be graded by Japanese Sensei's Enoeda,
Tomita & Kawasoe and have attended residential courses.
Sensei's Conroy's extensive knowledge, vast experience, firm
training methods combined with his friendly personality, make him an
