...the way of the warrior       ...the way of harmony

We run an eight-week Foundations Course in traditional Aikido aimed at beginners. This is a rolling course which starts whenever you wish to commit to it and then runs for eight weeks on either the Sunday or the Thursday, whichever you prefer. Our male and female teaching team have over 85 years` experience between them, so you can be sure that your training will be to the highest standards. For more information about training in the martial art of Aikido in Reading, Berkshire, please email us.

Once you have completed the Foundations Course, you will be invited to join the club and continue your training. You are also very welcome to train at our Aikido dojo in Caversham.
