Aikido Club (Ayrshire Iwama Ryu)

Aikido is a Japanese martial art, developed by Morihei Ueshiba; O-Sensei. His goal was to create an art that, instead of using force to defend yourself and overcome an opponent, one would instead "blend" with the motion of the attacker and redirect the force of the attack, which also prevents any harm coming to the attacker. This requires very little physical strength, as one "leads" the attacker's momentum using entering and turning movements before completing techniques with throws or joint locks. 

Classes are held twice a week.

Tuesdays: Mossblown Activity Centre, Mauchline Road, Mossblown from 8pm until 9pm.

Thursdays: Citadel Leisure Centre, South Harbour Steet, Ayr from 7.30pm until 8.30pm.

Classes cost £5 for adults and £3.50 for teenagers/students.

All are welcome to come along!

If you are interested in joining, then feel free to come along and watch a class or indeed take part! We are more than happy to answer any questions you may have if you wish to contact us ahead of time.

If you do decide to take part in training, then we suggest that you wear loose fitting, comfortable clothing that will not impede your movements. As for footwear, don't worry, Aikido training is done barefoot!
