Keighley Aikido is a young, friendly club.

The aim of the club is to teach practical self-defence based on Aikido in a friendly and co-operative way.

Students practise at their own pace, as gently or aggressively as they like, and are encouraged to develop to the best of their individual abilities. Classes comprise both aerobic exercises and learning the various techniques in Aikido.

The club regularly attracts students from Leeds, Bradford, Halifax, Burnley, Ilkley, Menston, and Skipton.
