What is Aikido?

Aikido is a Japanese self-defence and martial art that uses locks, holds, throws, and the opponent’s own movements.

Competitive (or Sport) Aikido is a relatively recent innovation, with national and international competitions for Juniors, Youth, Cadets and Seniors organised by the BAA and WSAF.

As members of the British Aikido Association (BAA) we follow the BAA grading syllabus which defines the requirements for each kyu grade (yellow, orange etc) and Dan Grade (black belt).

To be awarded a dan grade, you will need to pass a formal grading demonstrating both Kata and Hikitategeiko (application of Aikido techniques).

See Tomiki Aikido Syllabus for more details.

Just come to either Sedbergh Leisure Centre or Kents Gym 15 mins before the Aikido class starts and one of the club coaches will answer any questions you may have.
