COVID Edited September 2021

We continue to run three outdoor classes a week at Lammas Road WaterWorks Centre Nature Reserve and can now offer two indoor classes a week at the Walthamstow Leisure Centre E17 8RN. The classes are Sunday 2.30 to 4pm and Monday 7.30 to 9pm. We look forward to seeing you there!

Please see the Dojo news section for details.

AIKIDO is a traditional Japanese budo, ie a martial art concerned not only with practical technique but also with the positive effect that the unity of mind, body and spirit attained through training can have on daily life. The goal of our Aikido is self-development. There are no competitions, and strong emphasis is placed on helping each other in every way.

Aikido is for everyone. We have members aged between 5 and 80. All are welcome.

Training is slow and careful, and gradual development is emphasised. There is no need to be fit or strong to begin. Our instructors are qualified and insured by the Sport England recognised governing body (BAB), and we implement full child protection procedures.

The chief instructor Andrew Hathaway holds a 6th dan Shihan rank from the Aikikai Foundation.
