More about Aikido and Walkden Aikido Club


(Zen Shin Kan Dojo)

0161 790 1460

·         Aikido is practised by men and women of all ages.
·         All Instuctors are qualified and hold current First Aid certificates. 

Our aims are to promote the study of Aikido throughout North West Manchester and to help and assist anyone wanting more information about our club. We always give a warm welcome to beginners and visiting students .

Classes are held at Guildhall Community Centre, Walkden. Most  Fridays .
Classes start at 7.30pm and last until 9.30pm approx. Actual times of start and finish may vary slightly and if you can't come for the beginning try and come for the end.!

Beginners are always welcome at all classes.


To start with no special equipment is needed. You only require a clean pair of track suit bottoms and a T- shirt. Sandals or flip-flops are handy but by no means essential. Eventually you will need white cotton practice suit ( keikogi ) which you can either buy yourself or from us.


You don't join our club as such. You are made welcome as a member from day one. You will be expected to join the Komyokan Aikido Association after 8 weeks. You take out temporary membership for those 8 weeks, on your first day, for insurance purposes.


Right away! Don't put it off until you think you will be  slimmer, fitter etc. Your biggest step is to come along to the dojo and we will give you all the help we can
