Aikido Photos from Zlin
Photo: mostly Martin Frankovic
In Zlin, Czech Republic, the ever-joyous Patrik Orth works hard for aikido - in his dojo as well as with his Aikido magazine, and much more. My first visit was in 2000, from which these photos are, and we practiced without tatami. For the most part, we exercised with jo and bokken, which is easy enough on the naked floor, but somehow we moved on to regular aikido. Nobody seemed to mind.
