The Martial Arts community can be an oddly fickle thing, but at Satomi Kai we advocate and encourage cross training. Whether at another Aikido club, or in a different art altogether.
There is a big wide world of skill and knowledge out there, and in our experience, if you go with an open mind and some half decent manners, most people are friendly and happy to share that knowledge with you.
Below are links firstly to our Governing organisations, who can put you in touch any number of Aikido clubs to train with. The links following those are to just some of the clubs and teachers that our members have trained with in the past. Any and all of them have been most welcoming. Get out there and broaden your minds…
