About British Aikido Board

The British Aikido Board is recognised by Sport England , as the only governing body for Aikido in the UK and is a member of the Sport and Recreation Alliance.

Aikido is a Japanese Martial Art who's origins can be traced back to the 12th Century. It is based on spherical movements by which an attackers aggressive force is turned against itself . The main form of Aikido techniques are joint immobilisations and throws using the opponents momentum. Practices with bokken and jo (wooden training weapons) serve to assist in the understanding of techniques and their development. Traditional Aikido has since its conception been non-competitive, however several styles have developed which has introduced competitive aspects.
