Welcome to our martial art club. Do you want to develop physically, mentally and spiritually?  If so this is the first step on the path to being a black belt. If you are ready for a change you have found a different and dynamic martial art, we really look forward to connecting with you.

Our Aikido provides diverse physical training, covering both fitness conditioning and defensive techniques. Aikido will help to

  • Improve your flexibility and physical awareness
  • Boost your confidence
  • Promote inner well-being and harmony
  • Develop focus and discipline
  • Learn Japanese language and etiquette

You have the opportunity to experience authentic Aikido in a full time professional club run by an instructor who lived and trained in Japan for over 5 years. Sensei Neville completed the world famous Yoshinkan Instructor Training Course in Tokyo. You can choose to train with an outstanding home grown black belt female instructor, Sensei Catherine and for those South of Lincoln you can meet Sensei Lee who runs our Sleaford Club.

This is a family orientated club with direct lineage to Japan. You can easily get involved, become a 5th generation Aikido martial artist and enjoy all aspects of that experience. It’s a fantastic way to keep fit, have fun and meet new people. Feel free to step on the mat and get to grips with the basics. There is so much on offer to all people, give us a call if you have special needs, we will do our best to accommodate all differences. Any questions are welcomed and you can simply have a chat about your needs.  You could find yourself jetting off to Tokyo with us for the ultimate martial arts holiday of a life time. Pick up the phone and get in touch. 07925 188 363

If you feel Aikido could be for you, how about taking part in one of our classes, or come along to meet us at first hand and watch a session. For beginners, we offer an excellent value introductory offer of 10 lessons for just £50!  After that the monthly fee is just £25 per month.

2016 Lets Go, Update

Shaolin monks pound wood or rock to show steely gritted determination and reveal over time that repetition gives way to the effort, making their mark in the world. In Aikido we forge our selves training with our opponent, falling to the mat and getting back up again, Lets look at the front runners of 2016. Dan moving towards 4th degree heady heights. Louis to 3rd Dan. Tom, Chris, Catherine and Lee all on 2nd Dan focus. Graham, Tom BH, Josh, Jack, Cameron S and Rebekka looking… for that prestigious 1st Dan belt. Chris E, Neil, Julie, Mike C and Beth cruising towards 2nd Kyu status. Mike H, Alan, Eduardo, Jamie, Cameron C, Ellie, Luke, Aymen and Erin all heading towards brown belt greatness. Of course many more are following their footsteps, good luck to those, lets keep the beat and see you all here soon.
