To injure an opponent is to injure yourself. To control aggression without inflicting injury is the Art of Peace.

Classes are suitable for anyone aged 18 and above, of all ability levels, from complete beginners to the more experienced. We do not currently offer classes for under 18s.

Your first session with us is free of charge and the mat fee thereafter is £7 per session. We are a non-profit club and we only charge a mat fee in order to cover our hall hire.

Aikido is a non-competitive Japanese martial art used for self-defence, which focuses on blending and redirecting over clashing and conflict. Instead of meeting force with force, we aim to use our attacker’s energy and momentum against them. We seek to disable attacks and control aggressors through controls, pins and throws. Students can expect to gain physically and mentally - increased fitness, flexibility, co-ordination and balance are the most notable physical benefits, while an increase in self-motivation, confidence and discipline are the most notable mental benefits. All on top of learning a practical martial art!

Kyu Shin Kan Aikido was founded in September 2009 by Bradley Smith Sensei. Since the club’s beginnings we have gone from strength to strength, hosting multiple day courses with guest instructors of 4th Dan and above in a range of disciplines. Students from the club have gone to various national and international courses with instructors up to 8th Dan level. The club is lucky enough to be part of an international martial arts organisation, the International Budo Council, meaning that there are plenty of opportunities for students to visit other clubs around the UK and beyond.
