Aikido – Our class for John

We can’t believe that 14 years have passed already. This year our special anniversary Aikido class for our friend John Tuohy will be on Saturday 25th May at 11.45am.

John passed away after a short illness on May 31st 2005 and each year we come together to celebrate his life with a fun, dynamic class. John was a very talented drummer as well as being a fantastic Aikidoka and a great friend.
