What We Do

Why Choose Aikido?

Aikido is a unique and highly effective Japanese martial art intended to train the body, the mind and the spirit and can be practiced by both the young and elderly alike. 

If you are considering taking training in a martial art then Aikido - which does not use strength, expands your mental alertness, develops your self-confidence, improves your level of fitness and is very enjoyable - could be the "way" for you.

Aikido (合気道, aikidō) is a Japanese Martial Art developed by O Sensei, Ueshiba Morihei as a synthesis of his martial studies, philosophy, and religious beliefs. Aikido is often translated as "the Way of unifying (with) life energy" or as "the Way of harmonious spirit." O Sensei's goal was to create an art that practitioners could use to defend themselves while also protecting their attacker from injury.

Aikido is performed by blending with the motion of the attacker and redirecting the force of the attack rather than opposing it head-on. This requires very little physical energy, as the Aikidōka (Aikido practitioner) "leads" the attacker's momentum using entering and turning movements. The techniques are completed with various throws, joint locks and immobilisations.

You can help me by, recommending Aikido to the people you know, as an activity that will help people to relax, gain confidence and cope better with their daily life. It helps people to deal with life's problems in a way that is free from stress and anxiety and it enables them to develop lasting friendships with other like minded people. Aikido goes way beyond the training hall, it is a highly social activity practised in a friendly environment and which breaks down barriers to social engagement with ALL people.
