Bradford Tomiki Aikido Club a family friendly club providing training in the Japanese martial art of Aikido for juniors (aged 6yrs to 15yrs) and seniors (16+ yrs) in Bradford. You can read more about our Aikido Club, understand what is Aikido? and what’s involved when taking part in an Aikido training session.
We have received a number of enquiries from parents and members about return to practice and we would like to share with you our current thinking.
Although some gyms and sport centres in Bradford are starting to open, the restrictions in those sites make the practice of Aikido impossible. Sedbergh Sports and Leisure Centre is closed to the public as it is currently still operating as a district hub to support the fight against COVID-19.
It is our opinion that a return to practice would not be safe and would not be compatible with local rules. Until such time as it is safe to practice without social distancing restrictions the situation unlikely to change.
Clearly this is hugely frustrating for all of us, but staying safe and well takes a priority at this time.
For now be sensible, stay healthy and keep strong!
