Aikido has been described as the thinking-persons Martial Art – and with good reason. Its focus on body posture, good body movement and education in philosophy, makes it ideal for mature adults who are looking for something more meaningful in their lives that can ever be achieved in a normal gym.

It is non-competitive with no fighting, yet not only is it an effective self-defence system; it will also equip and prepare you to face the battles that confront you in modern life – things like fear, doubt and negativity.

Aikido is great fun and here at the award winning, super friendly Eagle Dojo you will be made to feel very welcome when you come along for your free trial lesson.

Our adult classes are some of the best sessions of the week, with a strong social element that people can get involved in. It gets you fit and does a lot more besides. The sense of achievement that our adult students get as they progress is quite amazing.


Intelligent people Aged between 16 and 70 who want to get fit – or stay fit – and who are seeking more fulfilment than simply pushing weights or pedalling bikes while watching TV. You’ll be prepared to work hard but you’ll also want to have fun. You’ll enjoy the social aspect of training with others – and, deep inside, there is probably something about “The Way of the Warrior” that fascinates you…
