We are a small , friendly club teaching Yoshinkan Aikido, a style of aikido as taught to the Tokyo Riot police and based upon the fighting techniques of the Samurai warrior yet encompassing the peaceful philosphies of Taoism and Zen Buddhism.
Aikido is a martial art which is based on non resistance and non-agression. An attacker is controlled by harmonising with them in mind , body and spirit.
Aikido principles extend into everyday life, helping us to deal with confrontation and live more harmoniously.
Our members are from all walks of life, and there is a strong social element associated with the club.
