Aikido

"The way of harmony"

Welcome to W.A.C.


We welcome all to train with us, beginners and seasoned martial artists alike. Our style is Aikikai, but we welcome people with experience in other styles. We aim to practice a soft style of AIkido while maintaining a martial spirit. All that is required to train with us is a respect for the club's ethos and the traditions of Aikido. Our classes are suited to anyone over 16. There is no maximum age.
