Beginners are introduced to Aikido through both taught lessons and practice.
During Tuesday classes we will introduce you to the key concepts and ideas in the Aikido we practice. We achieve this by exploring and studying Curiosity, Honesty, Generosity, Respect and Gratitude.
Thursday practice is then encouraged as we believe that practice in addition to taught lessons is an integral part of learning aikido.
What to wear?
We ask that you bring clean light clothing to change into at the dojo, and light footwear (slippers/etc) to move between the mat and changing room.
When to arrive?
Classes start at 7.15pm so we ask that you arrive early to get changed and relax before class starts. The doors open about 6.45pm.
Classes run every Tuesday from 7.15- 9.15 p.m.
Practice sessions run every thursday from 7.15-9.15pm
Practice is open to students who have attended at least one class.
The first class is free for new attendees. Subsequently, the price is £10 per class.

Grading and Seminars
Seminars are arranged throughout the year during which you will be taught by either Denis Burke Sensei (founder of Isshinkai Aikido). All gradings are held at these seminars, which are also a good chance to meet the members of the other clubs.
