Aikido technique - NikyoYou're welcome to watch as many of our Aikido training sessions as you like and try a taster session - all free of charge and without commitment, before joining the Aikido club. Whilst at the dojo, you can also ask the instructors any questions you may have or talk to the other students before or after training. Once you decide you want to start Aikido, you're invited to join our Aikido Foundations Course, which gives you a structured introduction to Aikido. The Aikido Foundations Course runs on your choice of Sunday or Thursday and has no specific start date, it starts when you join and runs for eight weeks. Please phone or email us if you have any questions or for more details about the Aikido Foundations Course.

New Starters at Caversham Heights

We've only just started teaching Aikido at our new venue in Caversham and beginners to Aikido are very welcome. We run the same rolling Foundations Course as at the YMCA, so you can start whenever you want. Come along and watch a training session or come and try it for yourself at a free taster session, then when you're sure that Aikido is the right martial art for you, sign up for the eight-week beginners' course. Please phone or email us for more details or if you have any questions.
