Standards

Pinner Aikido Club is committed to website accessibility and this website has been built in line with accessibility best practice, and to meet the aims of the Level Two (AA) recommendations made by the W3C Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (version 1.0), and some of those from Level Three (AAA). Whilst we would like to say this is categorically so it is a judgment call; many guidelines are intentionally vague and can not be tested automatically.

We have strived to make all pages on this site validate as XHTML 1.0 Transitional.

Layout

Cascading style sheets (CSS) are used in this site to separate content from the display. The CSS contains positioning, layout, font, colours and style information for the entire web site.

Separating style from content makes life very easy for visitors who prefer to view only the content of a web page, or to modify the content. As a result screen reader users can use the screen reader's navigation key to get around the site.

Aikido is a modern Japanese Martial Art and is very different from disciplines such as Karate, Kick Boxing, Taekwondo, Kung Fu, MMA, BJJ, Kempo and Krav Maga where there is emphasis on kicking, punching or wrestling.

Aikido is an extremely efficient self defence (also as Self-Defence Women London) system utilising balance-taking and posture-breaking movements to achieve joint locks, pins and throws. It contains elements of Ju Jitsu, Kendo, Judo and other budo.

Aikido Classes are held every Tuesday and Wednesday evening at our Harrow dojo, and Thursday evening at our Pinner dojo in NW London. Pinner Aikido Club London is a part of the Kai Shin Kai International Traditional Aikido Association (KSK), which is a member of the British Aikido Board (BAB).

Aikido is essentially a non-violent Martial art system that encourages the avoidance of confrontation and harmony with an aggressor. The classes are well attended with Aikido students always on the mat and aimed at all levels, from beginner to advanced but everyone is welcome to come along regardless of fitness or experience.

Our Aikido students work at their own pace during the training sessions and no one is forced into doing anything they are not comfortable with.
Pinner Aikido Club in London can help you achieve self-defense skills, self-esteem, confidence, and fitness. Most of all though, our classes are fun.

You do not have to be competitive or naturally athletic to take part in the Aikido class. Learning Aikido is about self-improvement and self-confidence.

Regardless of your size, body type and current level of physical ability or disability. If you are looking for a healthier, more confident way of life, then the modern art of Aikido may well be for you.
