Aikido in Japanese is made up of three characters or kanji. The first and most important is "AI" which means "to meet, come together and harmonise". The second kanji is "KI" which means "the spirit(of the universe) or soul". The third or last character is "DO" which means "the way or path", as in Kendo or Judo, to signify that the study of Aikido does not involve only self-defence techniques but includes positive character-building ideals which a person can incorporate into his or her daily life.
This is why many of the techniques help form the basis of control and restraint training taught to many different professions such as the Police and Nursing. We practice in the Berrywood Hospital inthe Duston area of Northampton, for further details regarding practice times etc, please refer to the Club Practice Details on this site.

Wado Ryu karate is both faster and lighter than some other popular styles. Power is developed through the proper application of technique rather than muscular strength, making it suitable for bothsexes and a wide range of ages and physiques. Wado Ryu embodies the principle of tai sabaki - body movement. Using tai sabaki in Wado Ryu we avoid an incoming attack rather than meet it head-on. The uchi (block) in Wado is more of a deflection/redirection that prepares for a swift counter-attack.
