Black Star Aikido are proud of being an Independant Organisation allowing us the freedom to research and develop our style. We also pride ourselves in having strong links and associations with other existing Aikido Groups.
We offer you the opportunity to study the traditional aspects of Aikido whilst placing emphasis on developing good martial art skills. This dynamic Japanese martial art is taught in a safe & structured manner by qualified staff.
Physical fitness, alertness, Confidence, Competence & Capability at using these martial skills are key issues. These are addressed by Black Star Aikido’s unique training package, involving the use of scenario training / state dependant training /open loop training / real - time weapons training and many unique free-style training methods proven to enhance performance.
From the very outset of training the new student will practice the wooden sword & the wooden staff. The relationships between the use of these weapons and the use of empty hands are fundamental in the study of true Aikido.
BLACK STAR AIKIDO acknowledges the obligation to inform its students about the legal implications in their use of Aikido techniques for self-defence. This is accomplished by providing information / education in ‘the use of reasonable force’ and the correct use of these dynamic skills for self-defence given the appropriate circumstances. All the relevant acts of British Law, Human Rights Act, The European Convention of Human Rights (ECHR) are taught.
We are pleased to offer a wide range of Courses and Seminars covering all aspects of Aikido training and development. These range from Aikido Basics to Advanced Black Belt Seminars.
We look forward to seeing you soon,
BLACK STAR AIKIDO
