The University of Leeds Shodokan aikido club was established in 2007 by Justin Gallagher (3rd dan). The club now hosts a core of 2nd and 1st dans. We train in the University sports centre (the Edge) twice a week.
We are a very friendly and sociable club with lots of events outside of the dojo too.
We regularly attend national and international events to meet other aikidoka and train with some of the best instructors from around the world. We follow the Shodokan system lead by Nariama Shihan at the Honbu Dojo in Osaka, Japan. As such the club tries to visit Japan every few years.
The club is open to all, and we welcome beginner to advanced at any class!
