Saku-Mei Kan (a.k.a Aberdeen Aikido Club) is a member of the British Birankai under the technical direction of T.K Chiba Shihan.

Aikido is a comprehensive Japanese martial art that is derived from centuries old techniques. It is a powerful and effective, non-competitive martial art which focuses purely on self defence and self development. Aikido is based on neutralising and controlling an attacker’s aggression through the use of evasion, immobilisation and throws without using physical strength making it ideal for men, women, young, old, large and small. The club welcomes new practitioners of any race, colour or creed and offers beginner through to advanced classes in Aikido and weapons.

We train at the Aberdeen Beach Leisure Centre. See here for a map.
