Bournemouth Aikido Club was formed in 1998 and we practice in the unique style developed by Sensei David Currie, Chief Instructor of the British Ki Aikido Association. It’s a “Way” that emphasises the power of gentleness. Classes are good fun, conducted in a traditional style with safety and consideration for others paramount at all times.

Our Dojo (Training Hall) is the Brother Bernard Hall, St Peter’s School, Southbourne, Bournemouth BH6 4AH, (Map below).

Aikido classes are held on Saturday mornings 09:00 – 10:00 & 10:00 – 11:00 (commencing Sat 28th September 2019).

Membership fees are £45 per month, payable in advance by Direct Debit. We allow concessions for students and the unemployed, contact us for details.

Info for Beginners

The best way to find out whether you want to begin Aikido training with us is to come along and meet us and watch a class. We can then decide on a suitable day and time to take you through the introductory process and prepare you to join in with the other students in general practice.

Feel free to pop in to the dojo at any time classes are on. (Seating is available.) If you’d like more information before you come along, please don’t hesitate to contact us.

N.B. If you have any kind of condition which might be aggravated by participating in the classes, please seek your Doctor’s advice before commencing training. If you are under 18 years old – sorry, but we have a Club Rule restricting membership to 18 years and over.
