Belfast Aikikai Opening

new-dojo-workThe Belfast Aikikai re-formed in August 2014 and is soon to officially open the doors to its new dojo in April 2014.

The Belfast Aikikai originally started in April 2010 by Judith McSpadden, 1st Dan Aikikai. It was re-formed in August 2013 after Judith spent two years working in Liverpool. Yudansha grading examinations take place under the direction of Jan Nevelius Shihan, 6th Dan from Vanadis Aikido Dojo in Stockholm. Grades are recognised by the Aikikai headquarters in Tokyo. 

Seminars are regularly held in Belfast and Dublin with high ranking instructors from abroad including Mouliko Halen, 6th Dan, Anthony Pinchbeck, 4th Dan, Philippe Gouttard 6th Dan, Luc Mathevet 6th Dan and Marc Bachraty 5th Dan. Regular in-house seminars are also scheduled throughout the year with Dublin Aikikai head instructor Michael O'Donovan, 3th Dan. Members of the Belfast Aikikai often travel to Dublin, England, Sweden, France and other parts of Europe for seminars and Aikido summer camps.
