Reading University Aikido

  • A Japanese martial art: a self-defence system using evasion techniques, throws, immobilisations and weapons
  • Training is in a non-competitive and non-aggressive environment
  • Improve your fitness, flexibility, awareness, confidence and reaction speed
  • Develop powerful, effective technique, efficient movement and body/mind co-ordination
  • Beginners welcome - don't worry if you're not very fit, flexible or active to start with
The Reading University Aikido Club offers martial arts training to students and staff. We train once a week during term time at the London Road Campus Gym  (Building 28) on Mondays 20.00-22.00, and can often be found in the campus bar afterwards. The gym is about 15-20 minutes walk from most halls. We also offer discount rates to Reading University Aikido Club members who also want to train at our Aikido club in West Reading at the YMCA on Thursdays and Sundays or at our Caversham Aikido dojo on Tuesdays, so you could train up to four times a week.

If you're not sure if Aikido is right for you, why not come and just watch a session and have a chat with some of the members or have a go - your first session is free and there's no commitment. Just wear something you can move in (t-shirt and track suit trousers are ideal, and wear something on your feet to the edge of the mat).
