Sanchin Aikido UK


Sanchin Aikido UK is a study group dedicated to learning the Japanese martial art of aikidō. Our group is based out of Paisley (Scotland), and we currently practice once a week on Sundays (1:00pm - 2:00pm) in the Barrhead Foundry (formerly known as Barrhead Sports Centre).

We believe that the practice of aikidō is something that can benefit everyone. It can be a fascinating study in body mechanics, and through regular practice we can learn to improve our self-discipline, co-ordination, balance, awareness, and develop a calmness under pressure that can be invaluable in our busy modern lives.

Our group operates on a not-for-profit basis, with funds being raised and redistributed solely for the benefit of the members.

Training is Sundays 1:00pm - 2:00pm, £5 per class for visitors or £20 per month for members (or £35/month to include all other Aikido UK classes).

Come Join Us!

We are affiliated with Aikido UK and the British Martial Arts and Boxing Association, though we welcome the opportunity to practice with anyone regardless of their style or affiliation.

Likewise, membership of our study group is open to anyone who is interested.

It is through gaining new perspectives on training and exploring different ways to do things that we believe our aikidō can be further developed and improved.

If any of this sounds interesting to you, just pop along to one of our classes, no need to book in advance. It would be great to see you there!
