Aikido Alive Manchester/Iwama Aikido MMU is a new Aikido Club in Manchester affiliated with the long-established Aikido Alive London headed by Sensei Bjorn Saw. Training will be in the Iwama tradition as taught by Morihiro Saito Sensei. The club is being initiated by members of Aikido Alive London with staff and students from MMU as a NON-Profit club.

Aikido is a Japanese martial art developed by Morihei Ueshiba. Individuals gain different things from practice. Some enjoy the martial, physical and technical aspects of one of the most sophisticated martial arts ever developed, while others engage more with aspects of concentration and moving meditation. It is a personal journey with many possibilities.
