    I think of aikido as really a refinement-style of actual MA, rather than a style in itself, which is why it gets such a bad rap since it attempts to cut out the real thing.

    Bob Clarke came to lowlands as a blue belt from the dojo on sheil road,liverpool called the Alpha Jujitsu Institute run by a man called Skelly,if my memory serves me right.That was about 1968-9.I once asked Jimmy Blundell where he leant jujitsu,and he said during world war 2 he was in the navy and being such a little guy(about 5 foot tall) the CHINESE in the engine room taught him how to defend himself.John Steadman was a brown belt shotokan karate when his mate Bob Clarke brought him to the lowlands.He hardly ever trained with us but was awarded a black belt in about 6 months.obviously personal tuition

    Alpha Ju Jitsu rings a bell. Was it not under a Mr Jack Britton?

    Red Triangle. Was this not the famous Shotokan dojo founded by Keinosuke Enoeda and brought forth such luminaries as Terry O'Neill, Frank Brennan and more?

    Please feel free to share. I am genuinely interested.

    Thanks.

    the alpha was run by prof jack britten at the time but mr kelly was teachin in the alpha at the same time. yes that was the famous red triangle karate club and fred kelly had his own club on the same premises as the red triangle karate club teaching jiu-jitsu. mr andy sherry was once a member of the old alpha jiu-jitsu school.

    First OFF; Let me just say that i am fed up to the back teeth with all these authors, historyens, instructors, and masters, or professors, of Jiu Jitsu who have wrote articles on web pagers or forums about the Late Great Professor Jack Britten who Established the ALPHA Ju Jitsu Institute in Liverpool Merseyside in the Early 1900s. Let me say that if they realy knew Professor Jack Britten that they would write the correct informastion down about him which they have all NOT DONE. The only one near to the truth about Professor, Jack Britten is Mr Ronnie Colwell of the World Kobukan Kederation, who once traind at the Old ALPHA.
