“Aikido has given me confidence”

When you come to practice you learn Aikido in a relaxed and informed approach with some explanation of why and how it is so effective.

Our dojo teaches these principles and for those who practice have something to give and something to take away with each practice. For myself I have especially gained confidence and discipline in thought and deed and with that in mind I wish to say to my Aikido teacher’s arigatou  gozaimasu (Thank you).

Phil Hilton (4th Kyu) – May 16th 2013


Sadly, after a few years of training, Phil decided to end his practice in favour of something outside of martial arts. He is still a good friend whom we keep in touch with and often invite to our major social occasions.
