Aikido for Beginners in Bethnal Green - the gentle and kind approach


Sanbodo Aikido integrates Aikido and Meditation. The founder of Aikido, Morihei Ueshiba, was a profound spiritual man who meditated as well as practiced Aikido. Somehow in the modern West, this fact is often forgotten and only the physical side of Aikido is pursued. We would like to bring back the spiritual and reunite the two.


The club is overseen by Nandaraja, 2nd Dan in Aikido and an Ordained member of the Triratna Buddhist Order, who has over 15 years experience in Meditation and Aikido. His insight was to integrate the two practices, guided by Buddhist ethics.
