Isshinkan, our headquarters Dojo, is a permanent Dojo dedicated to the continued practice of Isshinkai Aikido. It is here that Students gather throughout the year for Seminars, Courses, Gradings, High-Grade Classes, and it’s where our Teachers train, learn and practice. It’s also where Isshinkai Summer School is held every year.
Set in the beautiful Hampshire countryside, in the village of Fyfield near Andover, Isshinkan is surrounded by Japanese style gardens and fields. It is our Haven of Peace. We have a small orchard for camping and facilities in the dojo for you to stay as long as you need, should you live further afield. It is within easy reach of London, Salisbury, Winchester, Stonehenge, Avebury and many sites of interest
Staying at Isshinkan
Members and guests are always welcome to come and stay at Isshinkan, even if it’s just to get away for a day or two and recharge your batteries. It’s our Aikido home. We have space for camping in the orchard, plenty of floor space and a few futons, and a small number of comfy beds available to book from the Members Area.
Andover Ki Trust
Registered Charity No. 1061929
Isshinkan is provided by the Andover Ki Trust and maintained by volunteers. In addition to supporting the provision of Dynamic Relaxation Technique and Isshinkai Aikido, the Trust provides grants to make sure the many benefits of our work are available to people regardless of their financial circumstances. Andover Aikido Club is able to keep its membership fees at Isshinkan very low because of this generosity.
