Joining Us

We offer a free session in which you will see how Aikido works, hear something of its history and philosophy and get a feel of the techniques. You will also learn moves and exercises you can take away and use immediately.

The free classes are on Tuesdays 8:15pm and Thursdays 6.50pm and must be booked in advance. To discuss more details and to book your free session please click here or phone us on 020 7435 1330.

We also offer concessions to students, people on low wages or unemployed – and staff of many organisations, including the NHS, local authorities and John Lewis Partnership.
