Aikido Photos at Enighet
Photo: Ulf Lundquist
I was born and raised in Stockholm, which is also where I started 1972 with aikido at the Järfälla Budo dojo, but in 1991 I moved to Malmö in south Sweden. Later that year we started the aikido training at the huge martial arts dojo Enighet. These photos are taken by dojo member Ulf Lundquist, the upper two with Håkan Karlsson, who lives in the US right now, and the third with Fredrik Grenson.
