West Huntspill Aikido Club

Traditional Aikido practised with an open mind and heart.

'Aikido chooses not to kill, but to lead' - Morihei Ueshiba, founder of Aikido


We practise a practical style of traditional Ueshiba Aikido focusing on dynamic movement, weapons training and individual development. Aikido focuses not on punching or kicking opponents but rather on using their own energy to gain control or throw them away from you.

It is not a static art, but places great emphasis on motion and the dynamics of movement.
