Sensei Marill Poole – 6th Dan
Sensei Marill Poole has been training and teaching Aikido for over 30 years, under the direction of Sensei Jack Poole 7th Dan, and founder of the UK Shinwkai Organisation. She holds Dan grades in both Yoshinkan and Aikikai styles of Aikido, and the main reason for studying these two styles was to incorporate the structure and discipline of Yoshinkan, with the flowing movements of Traditional Aikido, and to promote a true family spirit through Aikido. Over the years we have met other like-minded organisations and regularly train together in harmony and sharing of knowledge.
Sensei Marill is a qualified Nurse and now works for the NHS as an Ergonomic Adviser and promotes Aikido on a daily basis teaching staff to power through their legs rather than using upper body strength. She has found that the language of Aikido is universal and transcends all spoken language and that it doesn’t matter what service she teaches in her professional world the common dominator is the principal of Aikido.
Sensei Marill Poole is a qualified First Aid Trainer and often organises and runs the first aid facilities at major Aikido events across the UK.
