What is Aikido ?

Aikido Knutsford in Action

Aikido is a Japanese martial art for self-protection, it is not violent and uses an aggressor’s energy against them. Awareness and technique are more important than strength. It is not competitive and we teach in a friendly, inclusive style – this is really popular with beginners. You can see more about Aikido here.

Aikido Knutsford is also very welcoming and you can have a great social life. Here’s what some of our members say:

“I arrive stressed from work. Aikido clears it all from my mind. I feel so much better afterwards. I just don’t get that from gym workouts.”

“I have never done a martial art before. I was always put off by attitudes on the tasters I tried. But I really enjoy the whole ethos of Aikido.”

“Very sociable and welcoming. The post-training discussions in the pub are always fun.”
