Make sure you do not miss the Aikido Demonstration at this years Lancaster Fun Palace. Members of Lancaster Aikido Club will be showing off some techniques upstairs in the Library Sanctuary. The demonstration will be between 11am and 1pm on Saturday.
Aikido is a traditional Japanese martial art that places emphasis focusing on principles of technique rather than application of brute force, while controlling and neutralising an aggressor to a mutually beneficial conclusion.
Lancaster Aikido Club is a not-for-profit martial arts club which has been teaching martial arts in Lancaster since 1976.
We train in a friendly atmosphere, focusing on daily practice of Aikido as a pragmatic and functional martial art for self-defence, training in both empty handed and weapons practice working from basic to more advanced levels as we progress over time.
Aikido training will develop you physically and mentally, but neither great strength nor high levels of fitness are required to begin.
Aikido is available to all ages. Many lifetime practitioners of Aikido continue to train into their 70s or 80s and we have senior practitioners training regularly at Lancaster who did not begin training until their 40s. We also offer children’s classes which are an excellent way to improve confidence, meet new people and have fun!!
We are affiliated with the Aikikai Hombu Dojo (Japan) and a network of Dojos in Europe (Traditional Aikido Europe) through Lewis Bernaldo de Quiros (6th Dan) who serves as Technical Director and Examiner.
