Beginner's Course
This is a annual week-long course attended by a large number of ex-members (many of whom are black belts). It is led by our wonderful technical director, Anita Bonnivert (6th Dan), who comes over from Belgium especially for us, often with a few of her colleagues/students. It's always good fun, and an extremely good opportunity to improve your Aikido. At the end of the week, depending on your progress, you may have the chance to grade. Every day hard practice is followed by amazing and varying socials of all sorts, including several Pub and Video nights, concluding with traditional and epic grading party!
 
Beginner's Course 2016

It is our 28th annual intensive course, a special week we look forward to every year, and a great opportunity for people to try Aikido and learn it from numerous teachers that come and teach us, especially Anita Bonnivert.  With numerous social events planned and a great number of friends of the club coming back to train and share their experience. Intensive course week will be not only a good opportunity to improve your Aikido skills, but meet great people and make friends.

Our first training session of the beginner's course is Saturday, 1st of October at 4PM until 7PM in the sports centre gym. It is free for all club members to attend. You can also turn up part way through, or leave early from any of the sessions. We will be taking payments for the intensive course and we are also happy to take payment in instalments from club members, just e-mail the club account or talk to us at training about this if you want to.
