“There is no better way to avoid wasting time than to be taught properly from the start”

The depth of our know-how is at our core

As an Adult Member at Isshinkan, you’ll be taught on a weekly basis by one of the most experienced Teachers in Aikido; an apprentice-served, 4th & 3rd generation Aikido Teacher with 40 Years Experience, who founded the Andover Aikido Club 25 years ago and was awarded 7th Dan (Japan) in 2004

Isshinkan and the Andover Ki Trust

Isshinkan is provided and supported by the Andover Ki Trust, Registered Educational Charity No. 1061929, assisted by many hours given by volunteers, which enables us to offer unequaled value at low cost. We embrace the highest standards of professionalism while remaining friendly, welcoming, respectful and as accessible to all as possible. With this in mind, we are an independant organisation subscribing to the MAGB and are not members of the British Aikido Board. Our Members’ Safety is even more important to us than our reputation, which we value highly. If you’d like to support this work with a donation you are most welcome to do so here, thank you!


What to wear

Off the mat we wear Zori ( slippers ), and we’re careful not to bring grit or dirt onto it.  We wear a white kit very much like Judo kit, however if you’re coming to give it a try to see if you want to join, we won’t expect you to have kit yet.

Just bring a clean set of clothes to change into at the dojo. You'll be practising on a clean mat and we don't want to bring clothes we've been wearing in the street, or all day, onto it. 

Shorts are not advisable.  Neither are clothes that constrict movement, or track suits with zips on the legs or sleeves.  Long sleeved tops are recommended.

We have secure changing rooms where you can safely leave your things during the class.
