Itai Doshin Aikido Club
The Trident, Taunton, Somerset


An inspirational seminar from Takimoto Shihan was experienced by attending students.  A generous sharing of humility, knowledge and humour from an Aikidoka with more than 40 years under his belt of which Shodan and Nidan were awarded by O’Sensei and subsequent grades from Doshu.


What a Day!

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 Shihan (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.
