We are also an equal opportunities school and take students with disabilities. Please contact Róisín direct to discuss further (details below).

Aikido was created in the early part of the 20th century by Professor Morihei Ueshiba of Japan (1883-1969).

The art relies on the avoidance of violent confrontation through its philosophy and concept, however, students are also taught the physical aspects that rely on using the aggression of the attacker by redirecting that energy and weight, and controlling the attacker using a series of locks and throws. Aikido is used by many police forces throughout the world.
