Information for Beginners

London Aikikai is one of the oldest London Aikido dojos specialising in the official Traditional Aikido style. The teachers have official, high grades and student grades are officially registered at Aikido World Headquarters.

Beginners Aikido Classes are designed to make you feel relaxed and welcome. Training is conducted in a traditional atmosphere. Lessons are available on our regular schedule as well as privately on an individual basis. We understand that beginners come with very individual minds, bodies and circumstances and we work hard to work at your level.

Thank you for visiting our website and for your interest in our practice. We have all the forms in the dojo but if you prefer you can download and print them from this page and bring the completed forms to the dojo.
