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.”
We train at Knutsford Leisure Centre on Wednesdays, from 7.00 – 9.15 pm. After training, we always find time for a drink and a chat.
A four week taster costs £12 (£8 for concessions), including BAB membership a benefit of which includes insurance. All you need to wear is loose fitting clothing. There is more information about starting here.
We always welcome new members, whatever age and whether male or female. Come and see us – it would be great to meet you.
