Over the weekend of the 24/25th January 2009, Thomas Davey, Christophe Courtin, Eoin Kerrigan and Phil Eyers successfully completed the British Aikido Board level 1 Coach course hosted by Tony Evangelou at the London Aikido club, and instructed by Steve and Ann Billett from the Aikido Development Society.

The course was an intensive two days consisting of a full day of theory based learning following by a day of practical assessment.

Congratulations to all of them.
