Abertillery Aikido Dojo

Affiliated to the Institute of Aikido

The Dojo has now re-opened. If you are interested in joining or finding out more information, please use the contact us section at the base of this page.

Please see our Covid-19 page for further details

Our Aikido Dojo is now in it's eighteenth year at the present location. Our aim is to provide Aikido training to the local community. Sharing our knowledge and passing on new tuition. Aikido can help with building confidence, self defence, and increased fitness at a steady pace. We pride ourselves in running a friendly Dojo, with a relaxed atmosphere, but with serious training.
The Dojo is a member of the Institute of Aikido & the British Aikido Board, who are the Governing Body for Aikido in the UK.

The club instructor is now entering his fortieth year in Aikido. The Dojo has a strong emphasis on Aikido weapons, and follows the Aikiken & Aikijo system. During weapons practice, use of the Tanto (Knife) and on an iregular basis, elements of Seitei Iaido are also taught.
If you require any further information regarding the Dojo, please contact us.

How to contact us

Due to a huge amount of spam emails, mainly from our Russian friends. I had no option but to remove the contact template from the site. You can either make contact through our Facebook page, or you can find our contact details on the British Aikido Board website.
