About us

We are a friendly club that offers practice in a number of Japanese martial arts in a dedicated full time dojo.

The club has a long tradition of producing very capable students of both Judo and Aikido. In recent years we have also established another class offering instruction in the Katori Shinto Ryu school of classical swordsmanship.

With our dedicated Dojo we offer a wide range of classes for both beginners and advanced students, young and old. Qualified instructors bring a large amount of experience that makes the sessions both fun and safe.

Please take the time to browse this site to get an idea of what the club offers and feel free to contact us to arrange a time to come along.

Our Dojo

We are lucky enough to have one of the few permanent dojos with dedicated facilities. Brand new mats provide a safe, clean environment to train in. The area is large enough to enable a normal sized class to practice with enough room to enable safe throws to be performed. A permanent area of mats ensures that there is a safe area to train in, without having to put mats down before each session.

The 2nd part of the dojo consists of seats that enable the class to be comfortably observed without disruption. This is very useful for parents who might wish to watch their child training or potential beginners to view a typical class.
