Equal opportunities – is about the law and how it is applied in addressing barriers which individuals might face in accessing training, employment and access to services. The law only intervenes when it is clear that legislation is the only way to deal with discriminatory acts. Equal opportunity therefore, is about ensuring training, employment practices and access to services are fair and free from discrimination and harassment. Currently legislation encompasses gender, race, disability, religion and faith, age and sexual orientation


Equality – is the state of being equal – treating individuals equally, which does not necessarily mean treating them the same. In some cases the need for equality may require unequal effort to ensure the principle of equality is achieved.


Sports equity - is about fairness in sporting activities, equality of access, recognising inequalities and taking steps to address them. It is about changing the culture and structure of sporting activities to ensure that it becomes equally accessible to everyone in society (Sport England 2000).


Diversity - Recognising, valuing and respecting the diversity of each individual. Diversity encompasses visible and non visible individual differences. They may include, but not limited to differences protected by anti discrimination legislation


Positive action – Is allowed under legislation to redress imbalances between under represented groups of employees. It allows employers to provide targeted training to under represented groups. And to encourage applications from groups that are under represented in particular areas of work.


Equity and Diversity and Aikido – Is vital to the growth of the art. Being responsive the needs and requirements of all students will make clubs and associations alike more flexible and accessible.
