University of St Andrews Aikido Club

Aikido is a non-competitive Japanese martial art focused on self-development and self-defence. It is often described as one of the most subtle and sophisticated of the martial arts. It uses the attacker’s strength and aggression against them, with techniques mainly consisting of throws and joint locks. The nature of Aikido and its use of body movement and technique allow it to be practiced by anyone – regardless of physique, age, gender or fitness level.

The club is very friendly and boasts a helpful and enjoyable training environment as well as an excellent social life with regular parties, movie nights, and other events.
