Aikido is a Japanese martial art developed at the turn of the twentieth century by Morihei Ueshiba». The principal feature of Aikido is that it is completely defensive to the point of non-violence. The aggression of an attack is defeated by moving in harmony with the attacker, rendering them harmless without causing injury. The art of Aikido is not reliant on athleticism or strength and therefore can practised by men and women of all ages.

Our own dojo encompasses three separate rooms which enables us to offer a comprehensive timetable. You can see the times of our classes by looking at the »Aikido timetable and the »fitness timetable. Please feel free to stop by at the club at any time; visitors are always made welcome, no matter where you train or what grade you are.
