How does Aikido fit in my life?

I started aikido with the Plymouth School Of Aikido back in 2012, arriving on the first opening day of The Hut Dojo.

Initially I joined the club to give a friend moral support for her first session but ended up enjoying the challenge myself, so now you can’t get rid of me!

I found that aikido gradually helped me gain back some confidence that was needed in my life at that time and I am thankful to the Sensei’s of the club for being welcoming, and pushing me to reach personal achievements over the years.

I enjoy attending various dojo classes the club has to offer in the week, as well as the great social aspect too.
