Aikido is a Japanese system of self defence that is fundamentally non-aggressive and non-competitive. Despite the brutal potential of the techniques, the object of the various throws, locks and pins is to neutralise and immobalise aggressors rather than cause them injury.

Based in Exeter, Devon, The Exeter Aikido Dojo was established in 1997. We are directly affiliated with the Osaka Aikikai in Japan, and our gradings are ratified through them by Tokyo Honbu. All of our dan gradings take place in Japan.

Note: Due to building works, practice on 17th July 2015 will be replaced by a social evening. See facebook page for more info.
