Malvern Aikido Club started in the winter of this year under Sensei Ian Hollman with just 5 members. The club operated under the auspices of the BKAA (British Ki-Aikido Association). It was based in the school gym at Holywell School.
The gym had single-glazed windows and no heat so it was very cold.
The mats were purchased from Brian Jacks https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Brian_Jacks
