Aikido: the way of the warrior, the way of harmony...
Try a free taster session in Aikido and then join the eight-week beginners’ course. The White Oak Aikido beginner’s course has been designed to offer you a structured introduction to this exciting martial art. Aikido is a traditional Japanese martial art, a way of self-defence and self-development. The techniques of Aikido originate from the throws, joint locks, sword and staff techniques of the samurai warrior. Modern Aikido uses the strength, momentum and aggression of the attacker rather than relying on being stronger, fitter or faster oneself. Aikido maximises the effectiveness and efficiency of the practitioner’s own body and movement, developing a deep understanding of how the body works and how this power can be used most successfully. Regular training in Aikido also helps practitioners to become more centred and grounded and thereby better able to deal with the stresses of daily life. Training is open to anyone over the age of 18 and we have no upper age limit.
Our team of highly skilled and qualified male and female teachers with over 80 years' experience in Aikido will ensure that your training will be to the highest standard. Our senior instructor holds the rank of 6th dan and is recognised by the British Aikido Board as a Level 3 Coach.
