Welcome to our martial art club. Do you want to develop yourself physically and mentally?  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 training 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 who has a Friday session.

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. The monthly fee is just £25 per month.

Japanese Guest Reviews Lincoln and Our Aikido

Last weekend we had a nice visit from Shuken Sato. He trains at Ryu dojo in Tokyo and works as a professional photographer. He took time to capture many images of the City and do some training at our dojo in North Hykeham. Here is his review.

“It is the best for me to choose on one thing to focus on. 

I like Lincoln. This city gives me an opportunity to mental space to do it.

I walked around this city and take a lot of pictures with peace of mind. It lets me have peaceful and relaxing feelings.

Although I live in Tokyo, there is a lot of information in words everywhere in Tokyo. In big cities like Tokyo, It is sometimes difficult to understand the importance of connecting with others.

It is an ideal Aikido that one gets on very well with one’s partner. It needs a quiet place to concentrate. The founder of Aikido, which is the Professor Morihei Ueshiba, chose appropriate place to practice aikido in his later years. Its place is a calm and around Nature.

I visit Lincoln to do Aikido in Eiryukan Dojo as you know. Lincoln is pleasant clean environment. It is one of the best place to do Aikido.

1st Junior Aikido Tournament Update

Well played to Ellis who made it into the semi finals at the 1st international aikido tournament in Tokyo, February 2019. Kian his brother also made it through two rounds which was also great result. Cameron was knocked out in the first round in a very tough top level category, overall the three boys did amazingly well in a trip of a life time. Ask them some questions at the dojo, you will find out lots from them about it.

Catherine Sensei their mum was supporting them all the way and thanks to her for making the effort to make that a possibility. Watch out for a local tournament in Lincoln this year in May and in the future, the 2nd Junior tournament in 2020 the Olympic year in Japan.

Have you ever wondered what martial arts are like in Japan? 3 lucky students will find out in February, travelling to the other side of the world. It will be a truly incredible experience. This has never happened before so Cameron, Kian and Ellis will be pioneers of our club.
