Out in the wilds of North Devon, you might imagine that the opportunities to practise Aikido are few and far between.
In fact, in the few miles between Bideford and Bucks Cross alone, you have a choice of no less than two classes.
In the beautiful wooded valley of Bucks Cross, is taught the full range of Ki Development and Aikido techniques in the Village Hall.
Meanwhile, in the town of Bideford, 3rd dan, Richard Small, teaches aiki-jo – the art of the wooden staff,
derived principally from the teachings of Morihiro Saito, the founder of the Iwama school of Aikido.
