Looking for a Dojo in London

Although I want to wait until September before training Karate again, I have already started to look for a Dojo located close to my house but, I still haven't found one that makes me feel comfortable.

I am sure that will be quite difficult (maybe impossible) to find a sensei like Ricardo, his way of living and understanding karate was what makes me keep training all these years. Anyway, I really hope to find here a Dojo that makes me feel at home ;)

One thing that I realized since I have started with "my pursuit" is that, while in Spain is pretty complicated to find a JKA Dojo, here the offer is huge, and is really easy to find a couple of them in each neighborhood. That is great, but on the other hand, I have also realized that most Dojos here are focused on competition and that is the reason why I haven't chose one yet... I don't like competitions at all and I would like to keep training with the idea of personal improvement =)

Otherwise, a colleague has suggested that I could train Aikido in the Dojo where he trains. I have done Aikido several times and I don't dislike it, but I think that for the moment I will be loyal to Karate.

I will keep on reporting...
