Welcome to the home of the kamizukan Aikido dojo on the web. Based in Brighton East Sussex, this is the place you will find, up to date information about the kamizukan dojo and Aikido in general.

AIKIDO - Translated as, the way (do) of harmonizing (ai) energy (ki), or the way of peace and harmony. Aikido is a non competative, self defensive Japanese martial art. Aikido uses joint locking, and throwing techniques to subdue an aggressive & determined attacker. who is either armed or unarmed with minimal force, without inflicting overt injuries.

Classes are open to everyone, male or female, from young to senior.

Aikido lessons encourage harmony and the avoidance of confrontation by improving self-awareness, self-confidence and fitness, and a sense of co-operation when students work together to understand and create the techniques of Aikido. So Aikido is ideal for people looking for a more harmonious form of Martial Art.

Learning Aikido is a fun experience and a great way to meet people and socialise, and keep fit.
