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 are directly linked to Japan as members of the Owari Aikikai under the chairmanship of Takimoto Sensei (7th Dan Aikikai) who are registered with the Aikido Aikikai headquarters (The Hombu) in Tokyo.  We are the first club outside of Japan to be part of Owari Aikikai so this is a special honour for us.  

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.

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