Inter Dojo Aikido Demonstration News Update!!!
In the stifling heatwave of 28 degrees our 1st “Inter Dojo Junior Aikido Demonstration Tournament” was held on the 14th July 2013 at the Nottingham dojo. Following a success from our first annual all dojo aikido demonstration, the Juniors from Nottingham, Derby and Lincoln came to represent their dojo, and compete in a demonstration and tournament.
Over 60 children took part in the tournament, and everyone from all the dojo worked hard and showed their sharp Aikido skills and strong spirit, and we saw some outstanding demonstrations from each dojo. There was plenty of “ooohs” and “Aaahs” from the audience which filled out the venue to the max of over 150 people all together.

Big massive congratulations to the 3 winning pairs below. They showed some exceptional Aikido skills, and some fantastic focus and concentration on the mat. Well done! And I hope this inspired all the other juniors for next time!
Inter Dojo Demonstration
Over 70 children took part in this part of the demonstration to show what each dojo can do in each dojo. Amongst a very competitive and high flying showcase reel, we had one winner. Big congratulations to Nottingham dojo for lifting the first Inter Dojo Cup! All the hard work everyone has put in over the last few weeks have paid off, and it was a very inspiring demonstration by all of them.
Overall it was a fantastic day of aikido and it was an exciting and insiring event to look forward to in the future. We are hoping to make this an annual event with more dojos and participants. Thank you for all the participants, and parents for supporting the event, and look forward seeing you again in the future.
