Thank you, Andrew!

I’m writing this to offer a very personal word of thanks to someone who has given outstanding service to our organisation over many years.

What is 

The Japanese martial art of Aikido is a comprehensive system of throwing, joint-locking and pinning techniques based on a philosophy of non-aggression.

It is not a sport.


Aikido has many physical and psychological benefits. The versatility of the art makes it ideal for students of all ages.


Aikido really does try to train without the over use of physical strength, which is the reason why males and females can work together equally.

When joining a martial school the student takes on a completely different attitude to exercise than if you were joining a gym.


Aikido is a Way

There is commitment and there is obligation
Do not abuse or misuse the art of Aikido
Study carefully, honestly and humbly
Respect your seniors 
Take care of your juniors 
                                   Seiichi Sugano 8th Dan
