I have just arrived in Bahrain and am looking for somewhere to continue my training in Aikido. I recently completed my NiDan, so I am a keen practitioner. I have found traces of a club, but can't seem to locate it ... can anyone help?

There's a good chance I'll be there within the month. I currently live in Denver and study under Gaku Homma Sensei, final uchedeshi for O Sensei. I'm curious if you folks found a place to practice.

Unfortunately no dojo available. But for me does not matter where i am practicing. there are plenty of places where we can train. I am planning to purchase some matts... and organize a small dojo. we can also train on the beach. there are couple of places. How long are u going to be in Bahrain?

Hi Teodor and Drew,
My number is 39416779. I am really interested in training together - I am missing it a lot. I was training with Buikukai in New Zealand. I am here for at least a year if not longer. I had heard that there was/used to be a dojo near the Dairy Queen round about wherever that is. Teodor give me a call or I'll ring you over the weekend. Sounds positive.Antonella Coppolino 05 Mar 2009, 06:01 - Report

Do you have any other information about the Aikido in Akliya?JL 25 Mar 2009, 05:29 - Report
the Aikido is in Salmaniya - not far from the hospital. I kind of know how to get there by site, but I will get better directions for you if you are interested. They train on a Sunday, Tuesday and Thursdays from 7:30 to 8:30 pm ... give me ring on 39416779 if you are interestedAntonella 29 Mar 2009, 02:45 - Report
Just found your posts. I'm also looking for a place to train. I spent a year looking but no joy. I did come across a place in Salmayia near the hospital in a small compound of shops but the dojo is karate. I checked all around and could not find anything. Maybe the aikido training takes place there on specific nights?
My plan was to set up a dojo in the new medical university in Buisateen (Royal college of Surgeons in Ireland). We have a brand new sports centre and mats are ordered but no idea on when they will ariive. Might be best to co-ordinate our efforts and see what the best way forward is? ian 363 90583Ian Grey 30 Mar 2009, 09:56 - Report
Can you send directions to the dojo or do you have a phone number for it?

Has anybody been given the location of this dojo as of yet? I am having trouble finding the exact location of the Imperial Suites Hotel and Ministry of Education.
If somebody could give me directions from the Grand Mosque in Manama (Juffair)and hours of operation, I would greatly appreciate it.James 26 Apr 2009, 07:17 - Report
