Allander Aikido Club is part of Takemusu Iwama Aikido Europe (TIA Europe) which is dedicated to preserving and passing on Aikido as taught to Saito Sensei by O'Sensei Ueshiba, the founder of aikido.


Club training is suspended due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
We encourage all students to continue individual, safe, and socially distanced training.

We are planning our return to training.  The return will be in line with Scottish Government advice and regulations.
We will also be following the British Aikido Board Return to the Dojo Plan.

 When we can safely return, we will  focus on socially distanced solo-weapons and general conditioning training.

Please contact us if you are interested in joining with us when we return to training.
