Club History

 Opened in 2007, by a small group of experienced practitioners who continue studying together to the present day. The current membership comprises of beginners, students who have practiced a number of years, and some who have studied the art for decades.  In all cases, experience and knowledge is shared willingly.

The club has long-standing friendships with members of Manchester, Macclesfield and Belper Aikido clubs as well as bing  affiliated to the Aikido Headquarters Dojo (Hombu) via the British Aikido Federation

Since our opening a number of eminent teachers have graciously accepted invitations to conduct seminars at the dojo:  Takeshi Yamashima Sensei, Terry Ezra Sensei, Dan Messisco Sensei, Janet Clift Sensei and David Yates Sensei (images below).
