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.”
"Study how water flows in a valley stream, smoothly and freely between the rocks. Also, learn from holy books and wise people. Everything - even mountains, rivers, plants and trees - should be your teacher."
HISTORY OF AIKIDO
December 14, 1883 – April 26, 1969
"Aikido is not a technique to fight with or defeat an enemy. It is the way to reconcile the world and make human beings one family."
Very friendly and welcoming Aikido Dojo, very nice premises, nice bunch of people learning Aikikai aikido.

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 :)
