Aikikai Aikido Dulwich

offers Aikido training for mind and body in West Dulwich, London. Aikido is a unique, dynamic Japanese martial art combined with mindfulness. We relate to Aikido as “ Zen in motion”.

 

​​“If your mind is empty, it is always ready for anything; it is open to everything. In the beginner's mind, there are many possibilities, but in the expert's mind,

there are few.”

Shunryu Suzuki

A community orientated place aimed at self-improvement and harmonising. Recommended for anyone looking to improve balance, groundedness, mental health and overall life style. - The teacher Istvan Steve Koloh is one of the most dedicated individuals: caring, inquisitive and deeply passionate. A place of true integrity, this form of Aikido is nurturing and flowy and very inspired.

Istvan (Sensei) helped connect me with true spirit of Aikido: Budo, Zen, Center to center connection. I was sad to leave due to change in personal circumstances.

There is a lovely presence here at Dulwich Aikikai Aikido. I am really enjoying my beginners course which is being taught very well with excellent instruction. Everyone is very friendly, helpful and respectful to each other. I recommend trying it out - we have a lot of fun while learning this great art and keeping fit :)
