Aikido is a non-aggressive, non-competitive martial art that offers individuals the opportunity to explore their character and how they connect with others through the practice of self-defence.

Students learn at their own pace and to their own depth in an informal and friendly environment where the emphasis is on looking after each other whilst absorbing effective technique.

The Aikido practised here is not a 'fighting' system: the aim is to create harmony and control of self and events that impact on us. It is about not fighting.

It is so hard to describe Aikido because it is different for everyone. You can read endlessly, see videos, even watch live, but none of that will really tell you what it is like. You have to feel it.

Newcomers are welcome at any practice session: come and discover your aikido!
