Aikido is a dynamic Japanese Martial Art suitable for men and women of any age, size and build.

Aikido focuses on using the attackers' movement against them and include a combination of empty-handed techniques, along with weapons such as sword, staff and knife, all practised in a safe and friendly environment.

On a purely physical level it is an art involving throws and joint locks, placing a great emphasis on body movement, harmony between partners and safe falling.

Whether it is applicable self-defense technique, spiritual development, physical health or peace of mind, you can find it in Aikido!

Our school follows the Aikikai style of Aikido developed by Aikido founder Master Morehei Ueshiba (O-Sensei) during the 1920s.
