You are never too old to start training in Aikido and because it does not rely on strength or speed it is an activity you can carry on for life.  The first session is always free, so apart from your time, there is little to lose by coming along and giving this wonderful martial art a try. If you don’t feel comfortable starting straight away, or just want to see what Aikido is all about, then you are welcome to come and watch. If you have any questions please feel free to call us or ask us when you come. Any one of the instructors will be happy to answer any questions as best we can.




Initially you will learn how to defend yourself if you need to and to do this by causing the minimum damage to your attacker necessary to preserve yourself. As you progress in your studies you will develop the ability to not only defend yourself but also to preserve your friends, family and if necessary, those who cannot defend themselves. The ultimate goal of Aikido is to develop your ability to where, if the situation allows, you are capable of neutralising and preserving the attacker.


The word community can be defined as ‘the condition of sharing or having certain attitudes and interests in common’. First and foremost, our desire is that you will quickly realise that you are joining a welcoming, supportive, and friendly group of people. A group of people drawn from all walks of life, both male and female and a wide range of ages. What unites us is a shared passion for studying the martial art and a desire to grow in our understanding together.


Joining Bugeisha Aikido Club and studying Aikido offers a holistic approach to well-being everyone can benefit from. This happens through a blend of physical fitness, increased clarity around conflict, enhanced confidence, and a deeper understanding of your body’s capabilities.


There is no question that studying a martial art can be frustrating at times and for most people it does not come easy. But if something isn’t challenging then perhaps it’s not worth studying. We firmly believe that the rewards from studying Aikido are numerous and well worth the sacrifice in time and effort to train. A few rewards to consider are the joy of mastering new skills, the fun of training together with like-minded people, and the satisfaction gained from finding your way of doing the techniques taking into account your experience and capabilities.

I joined Bugeisha Aikido Club 6 months ago. They are a really nice welcoming bunch and have helped me build confidence while learning aikido. It's not just been about learning a technique, it's been about learning how a technique and movement works for me and my size/shape and building that confidence up.

This is a club for adults of all ages. Newbies or Experts. Founders have cultivated a very humble, approachable and welcoming attitude which the current instructors follow passionately. This has helped in building a good community of present and past students. There are occasional full day sunday classes where couple of different clubs scattered around different parts of uk join and practice together, which helps to get a deeper understanding of Aikido. Will definitely recommend anyone who wants to give a try.
