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.

If you want follow in their footsteps at future events please send us a note to express your interest. Anyway for now, breaking new ground, Good luck guys.

News and information from Eiryukan Aikido
Wow it’s been absolutely ages since I posted on here so I thought I would update today to let all visitors know we are still here fully operational and open for business. Classes are going very well with lots of options all week. I will endeavour to update here more often to compliment our Facebook page content. Keep in touch and see you at the dojo soon. Best Wishes, Neville.
Thursdays are the new Fridays :) We are opening a brand new dojo session at 5pm and 6pm on Thursdays. If you ever wanted to get involved in martial arts or just have a taster here then this is the blank canvas for you. Chat to Sensei Nev on 07925 188363 about taking the next step.
Yes we are all about experience. Whether its connecting with your core or grappling for position you can do it all at Eiryukan Aikido. Catherine ( 07906 874 146 ) runs the Pilates sessions across the week and we have new classes of fitness and fulfilment starting all the time. If that’s not for you why not check out ju jitsu to try at the dojo? There is something for everyone. Get involved while you can.
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.
