Tuesdays: 20:00 - 22:00 (at Chesterton Sports Centre)

Thursdays: 20:30 - 22:00 (at the Kelsey Kerridge sports centre)


Please could everyone try to be ready for class a few minutes earlier, so that we can all help set out the mats for training.


We also have a class for children (PDF document) (11+) on Tuesday evenings. Please note that sadly we had to cancel our classes for primary school children due to personal circumstances of the two main instructors. Email us, or get in touch with the main instructor, Britta on 07800 784 777 if you are interested

"He who has gained the secret of Aikido has the universe in himself and can say, "I am the universe." When an enemy tries to fight with him, the universe itself, he has to break the harmony of the universe. Hence the moment he has the mind to fight with me, he is already defeated"
