The official Aikido club of the University of Cambridge

Cambridge University Aikido Club is a student-run martial arts club established in 2020. 

Aikido is a Japanese martial art that uses strikes, throws, locks and pins to control an opponent. At Cambridge, we practice Shodokan Aikido - also known as Sport or Tomiki Aikido - which features ‘randori’ (free-form sparring) and competitions.

In addition to student-only sessions at the University Sports Centre, we also train with Shodokan Aikido Cambridge, a community club based in Trumpington.

Our aim is to provide a safe and inclusive training environment for students from complete beginners to experienced practitioners of all styles of Aikido.
