Aikido - Te is an Aiki form with Kata that teaches fluid and harmonious movement coupled with technical skill and power. These are the key aspects of this dynamic style. Aikido enhanced with the powerful strikes and kicks of Karate.  Through progression and training, the expression of the Warrior Way is realised by you in your own way.

It is a truly effective Aikido style that is centred on the manipulation of the opponents energy. It unleashes the power of traps, locks, throws, holds and subjugations and enhanced by the inclusion of dynamic striking techniques.

Practice and focus can awaken the spirit within, can give purpose and meaning in new and exciting directions, create excitement to learn and push the boundaries of the self to greater horizons.

As well as the core subjects, we teach a variety of varied skills and disciplines that are fundamental to Martial Artists.  Workshops focus on different areas that allows the students to really explore the art beyond the basic syllabus.

For example, we may run a few workshops in Oxford on physical fitness or the art of movement, on strength and power development or a focus on a particular weapon such as the Bo, Jo or Nunchaku.  We may focus on Aikido concepts.  Other subjects include tumbling and awareness training such as working with multiple opponents, there really is no limit.  These workshops give the students a chance to explore and try new areas of Martial Arts to enhance and vary their training.

They are a popular and exciting addition to weekly Aikido and Sword training sessions.
