Aikido is a Japanese martial art of self-defence which is ideal for all ages and all levels of fitness. Beginners are welcome at ALL classes and are introduced gradually to techniques and a safe way of falling to protect their body (members are encouraged to develop at their own pace). Classical weapons such as Jo (wooden staff), Bokken (wooden sword) and Tanto (wooden knife) are also taught.
Adults and Juniors are taught a range of moves and techniques that are based on self-defence which can also aid weight loss, increase fitness and stamina, improve balance and develop self-confidence. Learn to defend yourself by blending with an attackers power, dispersing their energy, and finally, throwing or controlling the attacker.
ALL Instructors are DBS checked, first aid qualified and hold coaching qualifications issued by the British Aikido Board (Governing Body for Aikido in UK). They all have a minimum 10 years experience in Aikido.
