John Burn Sensei

John Burn Sensei began training in martial arts at the age of 7 and has been studying Aikido since the early 90’s. He is the only direct student of Hiroshi Ikeda Sensei in the UK, who he has maintained a close relationship with for 20 years. He spends countless hours every year with Ikeda Sensei and runs a full-time dojo in Coventry. Burn Sensei’s main interest with Aikido is internal strength, specifically in how to use gravity and the ground to bring solidity to the body while breaking another's balance. He has a good understanding of internal strength through constant analysis and study of 6 harmonies movement with regard to how it relates to Aikido, thanks to Mike Sigman.
