Welcome to Seikatsu Aikido

November gradings 2017

Aikido is a Japanese self defence Martial Art that employs the energy and aggression of an attacker to instigate a series of locks and holds and throws. This Art consists of traditional Samurai Ju-Jitsu technique and values. The founder of Aikido, Morihei Ueshiba Sensei, adapted the skills and philosophy of the Samurai warrior into the martial art we know today, a very efficient and comprehensive method of self defence to open handed and weapon attacks.

Any one can learn Aikido and we encourage you to contact us for some free introductory classes to see what we are about. We practice and learn in a safe and friendly environment that will improve your strength, fitness, coordination and self confidence.
