In 2007 a small group of experienced practitioners came together and established the Congleton Aikido Club. We have a membership that has grown to include new starters. Some who joined us around the same time and have practised several years together, alongside those who have studied for many decades; and without exception, knowledge and experiences are willingly shared.
The club has hosted some internationally renowned teachers who have graciously accepted invitations to teach seminars in Congleton. These include Takeshi Yamashima Sensei, Terry Ezra Sensei, Dan Messisco Sensei, Janet Clift Sensei and David Yates Sensei (images below).
We have long-standing friendships with Manchester, Macclesfield and Belper Aikido clubs. We are affiliated with the Aikido Headquarters Dojo (Hombu) through membership of the British Aikido Federation
