The classes are open to both members and non-members of One To One Gym and Fusion Martial Arts.

The class will be run by Sensei Laura Williams Shidoin 4th Dan 

Sensei Laura Williams has been practising Aikido seriously since 1988, although prior to this spent many years practising as a junior. Laura has studied under various European and Japanese Sensei’s (teachers) and has been influenced in her Aikido practice by Kyoshi Mike Williams Shihan, Shihan D G Jones and by Tesshin Hamada Hanshi- Chairman of the International Division of Dai Nippon Butoku Kai. (DNBK Kyoto Japan)

She obtained her teaching qualification in 1994 which was soon followed by being Graded 1st Dan (black belt) in 1995 by the Shin-Gi-Tai Aikido Society. Laura currently holds the grade of 4th Dan Aikido with the Shin-Gi-Tai Aikido Society and Treorchy Aiki Ryu and is registered in Japan with the Dai Nippon Butoku Kai as a certificated Yudansha Aikido SanDan. (3rd Dan) She has also been awarded the title of Shidoin (Leading Instructor) by both Treorchy Aiki Ryu and Dai Nippon Butoku Kai. In addition to this, Laura is a Coach with the British Aikido Board and a Leading Aikido Instructor with Treorchy Aiki Ryu, and has over 17 years of teaching experience.

The Aikido taught at the Academy will consist of a variety of empty hand and weapon techniques which redirect an attacker’s energy in a controlled defence. Our Aikido is a dynamic living art but incorporates the training in Ki (internal energy/power) development. The style has been influenced by Kyoshi Mike Williams Shihan 7th Dan  Treorchy Aiki Ryu and Shihan G Jones of the Shin-Gi-Tai Aikido Society. Also, incorporated in the style, is the Traditional Budo (traditional martial arts) influence as taught by Dai Nippon Butoku Kai and handed down through the generations by various Masters of Classical Japanese BUDO.

Everyone is welcome to practice at the Academy, regardless of gender, age or disability, whether you are a complete beginner or experienced martial artist, Aikido is an art for anyone and as such we will cater for your needs.
