Martin Acton's Aikido Institute has classes and courses for children and adults. We teach Aikido, self-defence, Japanese language and anti-bullying classes. We also run weekly group guided meditation sessions this helps people that are not interested in martial arts to learn to control their emotions to quiet the self talk going on in their heads and to work on coming to a state of imperturbability. We hope you will come and try a free sample lesson.
