Gerald Lopez

Gerald started learning aikido in 1982, while studying for a law degree in London. Gerald's principal instructor was Ken Williams, the first British aikido black belt and national instructor. Williams firmly believed in, and practised, aikido using relaxation, mindbody coordination and ki.

In 1986, Gerald started his own Streatham Ki Club, and also taught aikido for the Inner London Education Authority (ILEA). He was graded and awarded 3rd dan by Ken Williams in 1993.

In 1994, Gerald left the UK, and stopped practising aikido for 25 years. He then studied yoga, taught thousands of classes, and trained yoga teacher trainees, for 16 years.

Gerald currently practises at Kyu Shin Do Aikido, under Ray Eder, 6th dan, and Gail Eder, 5th dan.

He has worked as a photographer, writer, luxury boat skipper, ayurvedic practitioner, web designer, and Internet marketing consultant. He has been fascinated by mindbody since the 1980s, and in 2014, was awarded a Postgraduate Diploma in Health Science (MindBody Healthcare) by the Auckland University of Technology (AUT).
