128th FFA monthly interclub practice (at Makati Sports Club)
All are cordially invited to our 128th FFA monthly interclub practice. It's an opportunity for new aikidoists to meet members of the wider aikido community, for old aikidoists to catch up with friends from other dojos in other parts of town, and for all to get out of their technique and movement comfort zones. This series of joint monthly practice sessions started in September 2000. The FFA is recognized by Japan Aikikai.

A) DRIVING YOUR CAR
Option 1: Driving eastwards along Buendia (Gil Puyat) towards EDSA, cross Buendia/Ayala intersection (main landmark here: RCBC Plaza on your right), turn right at next traffic light, into Tordesillas. You are now in Salcedo Village. Keep going about 300 meters until you see Jaime Velasquez Park on the right. Turn right on Velasquez St., which borders said park; keep going until the end of this very short street. Turn right on L.P. Leviste. Makati (Sports) Club is the second lot on the right. Parking available at Velasquez Park carpark, and anywhere along L.P.Leviste (except during tow-away times 1700 - 1930 hrs on weekdays).
Option 2: Driving southwards along Paseo de Roxas towards Ayala Ave., turn right onto Villar (the first corner immediately after the Makati Ave. X Paseo de Roxas intersection). Follow Villar for about 300 meters until you hit L.P.Leviste (a T-junction). Turn left onto L.P.Leviste, and 300 meters later (past Velasquez Park on your right) find Makati (Sports) Club main gate on your right. Parking available at Velasquez Park carpark, and anywhere along L.P.Leviste (except during tow-away times 1700 - 1930 hrs on weekdays).
B) USING PUBLIC TRANSPORTATION
Option 1: Get off your jeepney/bus on the corner of Buendia (Gil Puyat) and Tordesillas. Walk southeastwards along Tordesillas as it goes into Salcedo Village. At approximately 100 meters from Buendia, on the second corner, turn right into Gallardo St. Fifteen meters further on, see the secondary gate of Makati Sports to your left.
Option 2: Get off your jeepney/bus on the corner of Ayala Ave. and Herrera St. (now Rufino St.) Follow Herrera/Rufino northwards for about 300 meters until it hits a T-junction; that's L.P.Leviste (formerly Alfaro). Turn right (eastwards) onto L.P.Leviste. Fifty meters further on, see Makati Sports main gate to your left.
Option 3: This most direct route, exclusively for pedestrians because it relies on vacant lots and/or open driveways, is approximately 300 meters from Ayala/Paseo de Roxas intersection. From the corner of Ayala Ave. and Paseo de Roxas, make your way to the parking lots behind the Insular Life and Philamlife buildings. Cut through vacant lots and building driveways, making your way to L.P. Leviste Street. Your main landmark is the Jaime Velasquez Park on L.P.Leviste. Makati Sports Club is two lots west of this park, along the same street.
