What is Aikido?
Aikido is a modern, dynamic, Japanese martial art
It is equally suitable for men and women - all physiques and levels of fitness.
Aikido is based on Ki - the harmony or balance of energy.
You learn how to neutralise the energy and strength of an attacker by first blending with the incoming attack then redirecting its force. You also learn moves to control and pin down an attacker.
All our instructors are Dan grades with many years of experience and are qualified British Aikido Board coaches.
• Effective but not aggressive
• Powerful without relying on strength
• Accessible but always challenging
