Gloucestershire Aikido Club practice at The Painswick Centre on Tuesday evenings and Sunday mornings in the Beacon Hall. Beginners are welcome. To find out more and to book, please visit their website.
Here’s some more information from their website about what Aikido is:
‘Aikido is a martial art whose aim is much more than to be simply a form of “self-defence”. Although it is the case that Aikido can be effective as a self-defence art, Gloucestershire Aikido Club’s primary purpose is to provide instruction in the principles upon which aikido is founded including the study of both empty-handed techniques and the weapons origin of the art… We make no claim that practicing Aikido with us will empower you with devastating self-defence techniques that enable you to overcome any attacker. This is not the spirit or the intention of aikido. Aikido as a mechanism for self-defence is something that the individual develops and evolves over time – years rather than weeks or months – and relies on a deeper appreciation of the true meaning of “self-defence”, gained through the extensive practice of Aikido.’
