I have been practising aikido since 2001 and have coached since 2006. I’m a 4th dan and work at the University of Sheffield.
I have trained and competed in aikido at European and world championships in the UK, Spain, Switzerland and of course…Japan, a fascinating country and culture! Personally, I love the breakfalls, which is how to escape any technique safely. Aikido has taught me determination: if at first you don’t succeed, you try again!
I hope we can show you how awesome aikido is!
