Sanchin Aikido UK


Sanchin Aikido UK is a study group dedicated to learning the Japanese martial art of aikidō.  The group is based out of Paisley (Scotland), and currently trains twice a week on Sundays and Fridays at the Floor4orce Dance Academy (Unit 12) in the Sir James Clark Building.

Please see the map below and Schedule page for further details.

The group was founded on the principle that the practice of aikidō is something that can benefit everyone.  Aikidō can be a fascinating study in body mechanics, and through regular practice you can work to improve self-discipline, co-ordination, balance, awareness, and develop calmness under pressure.  These are all things that can be invaluable in manging busy modern lives.

Funds are raised and redistributed on a not-for-profit basis, i.e., solely for the benefit of the group members.

Training is Sundays 11:30-12:30 & Fridays 19:30-20:30 at the Sir James Clark Building in Paisley.  Check the Schedule for details.

Sanchin Aikido UK are affiliated with the British Martial Arts and Boxing Association, though anyone from any style or affiliation is welcome to come along and train!

Likewise, membership of the study group is open to anyone (over the age of 18) who is interested.

The group train in the Floor4orce Dance Academy, Unit 12, Sir James Clark Building, Abbey Mill Business Park, Paisley, PA1 1TJ

Gaining new perspectives on training and exploring different ways to do things is a great way to enable aikidō to be further developed and improved.
