We are a small , friendly club based in Newbury , Berkshire UK.
We have been running for a number of years and are well known and respected locally for training with methods which are applicable to real life situations, while being safe and suitable for anyone over sixteen years old.
What we do may not look very spectacular, but it does work.
We offer training in a number of disciplines, including :
Ki and Traditional Aikido
General Self Defence
Our training is gradual and progressive and builds practical self-defence skills, while ensuring that you progress at your own pace and don't do anything before you are ready for it.
Our training is suitable for both men and women and our training environment is such that everyone feels comfortable. You don't need to be superfit to begin. All you need is an open mind, a t-shirt and a pair of tracksuit bottoms for your first class. We have students ranging in age from late teens right through to mid-fifties. Most newcomers report that they feel relaxed after the first initial minutes on the mat.
We are not a sport martial art and do not compete in tournaments. We train by co-operating, not competing. A relaxed and friendly attitude is, we find, a sure route to attaining real-world self-defence skills, but doing so without injury.
