Event Type

Interested in starting a martial art? Try out Aikido at this free introductory session for adults of all ages and fitness levels at our beginner-friendly dojo in Oxford!

Aikido is a defensive martial art that uses body movement to deflect attacks with minimal force. You’ll learn pins, locks, throws, and break-falls as part of this dynamic, non-competitive art.

This introductory session will include a beginner’s class of core techniques and a demonstration of the breadth of techniques that Aikido has to offer. You are welcome to join the practice or come along to watch. If you would like to practice, please wear loose-fitting clothes with long sleeves and legs, and remove any jewelry.

The session will take place at the dojo in the Iffley Road Sports Centre in Oxford. There are change rooms with lockers available. Please ask at reception for directions to the dojo.

Please get in touch if you have any questions about the event. We hope to see you on the mat!
