Congleton Aikido Club was established in 2007, and still has a number of founder members who continue to practice regularly together on a Tuesday evening. It is  affiliated to Hombo (headquarters) dojo (Tokyo), via the British Aikido Federation.

Since opening a number of eminent teachers have graciously accepted invitations
to conduct seminars / classes in the dojo, these include:  Takeshi Yamashima Sensei, Terry Ezra Sensei, Dan Messisco Sensei, Janet Clift Sensei (images below).  The club also has a long standing affiliation and lasting friendships with the Manchester Aikido Club, lead by David and Robert Yates.
