Aikido in Films and on TV

I previously posted a clip of an aikido class that features in Amazon's blockbuster science fiction series, The Man In The High Castle. While aikido doesn't get as much coverage in the movies as, say, kung fu and karate, it does pop up every once in a while. I'll post a few more aikido clips from TV and cinema shortly. But to start, I really can't leave out Steven Seagal...

The Aikido of Seigo Yamaguchi

If you understand Aikido and you watch closely, you will discover some gems in this old video. There is no commentary but there is much to be learnt if you watch attentively.

January Aikido Classes

There will be no Aikido class next Monday (January 9th, 2017) but there will be a class on Tuesday (January 10th). Apart from that, all classes run at their regular times in January - that's 7:30 to 9:30 on both Monday and Thursday. Newcomers are welcome to come along to any class. The first lesson is free. We also welcome visitors from other Aikido clubs no matter what style of Aikido you practise. So I hope to meet a few new people during the coming year!
