Aikido is a non-competitive martial art involving a wide range of techniques that can be used to throw or immobilise an opponent. It helps to develop a greater understanding of harmony, balance & the dynamics of movement.

Aikido is suitable for both men & women, as the principles rely on correct execution of the technique rather than brute strength.

Classes are held at:

Rickman's Corner Community Centre
Linton Heath, (Just off A444)
Swadlincote, South Derbyshire
DE12 6PD
