Recognitions and Partnerships
As a National Governing Body the British Aikido Board are proud of each and every award we work for and receives. We are proud of the meaningful, long term connections built with some of the finest organisations and charities in the UK. As we represent the majority of organisations practicing aikido in the United Kingdom with these recognitions we support , encourage and promote the highest standards of aikido within an environment of mutual respect. We continue to raise awareness of the value of aikido not only as a contributor towards healthy living, but also in the development of adults, young people and children, without regard to race, gender or creed.
Members Of The Sport & Recreation Alliance
The British Aikido Board (BAB) has been a member of the Sport & Recreation Alliance (SAR) since its inception in 2010, The SAR was previously known as the Central Council of Physical Recreation (CCPR) which the BAB joined in 1993, We use our membership of the to network with other sporting organisations and to influence where necessary to ensure that the BAB member organisations voices are represented on a national level.
The BAB is Recognised by Sport England
Recognition is a process which determines which National Governing Bodies (NGBs) are responsible for governing the sporting activities the Sports Councils are willing to consider supporting and working with. It acknowledges the status of NGBs as private organisations that govern particular sports through the common consent of the sport itself.
Associate Member of the Anti-Bullying Alliance.
The British Aikido Board executive decided it was very important to support the work being carried by the Anti-Bullying Alliance. All Aikido has an zero-tolerance approach to bullying in any form therefore we have policies and procedures to ensure the BAB Member associations and clubs have guidance help reduce bullying in martial arts especially Aikido.
