Itai Doshin Aikido Club
The Trident, Taunton, Somerset


Itai Doshin Aikido Club teaches traditional Aikido as developed by the founder Ueshiba Morihei and are privileged to receive technical direction and weekly instruction from Toshiaki Kawachi Sensei (5th Dan Aikikai).

We have established a direct link to Japan through Kawachi Sensei and are working to continue building that relationship over the coming months with a second visit to the UK for his Sensei, Takimoto Shihan (7th Dan Aikikai), being planned for June 2015.

We are also an 'Associate' member of Kobayashi Dojo's UK (KUK) who represent Kobayashi Dojo's based in Japan and regularly enjoy their teachings and seminars; a number of which are planned for 2015 including the newly promoted Hiroaki Shihan and Urban Shihan, both of whom have been awarded 7th Dan so congratulations to them.

We welcome new students who wish to experience this soft, dynamic, yet powerful martial art.
