Regular Aikido training

Beginners are also welcome to train at any of the weekday classes and will be looked after by the instructors and senior members, so that their introduction to aikido is painless and enjoyable.

Individuals progress at different paces and there is no pressure to perform, but (as with any worthwhile activity) regular attendance is essential to make progress.

Classes are not rigidly structured and in the beginning can be rather confusing, but confidence comes with regular practice.

At least two classes per week is recommended, many of the regular members attend 3 to 4 classes per week.
