The Seijitsu Aikido Ryu Association

Seijitsu Aikido Ryu trains in the traditional Martial Art of Aikido and was formed 26 years ago. The association is based in Staffordshire & the West Midlands with clubs in Great Wyrley, Tamworth, Kingsbury, Chelmsley Wood and Wolverhampton. We also have affiliates in Brighton, Birmingham, North East England and North Wales.

The association is well known in the Aikido world, both nationally and internationally, largely due to the good standing of the senior instructors.

Within the ranks of Seijitsu Aikido Ryu there is a wealth of experience and a rich diversity of styles making it a great place and organisation to train at and with.

Seijitsu is a full member of the British Aikido Board, the governing body for Aikido clubs in the UK.



Seijitsu Aikido Ryu is honoured to have had connections with some of the great Masters of Aikido but feel it is necessary to give special thanks to Kenshiro Abbe Sensei. Abbe Sensei is the Master who in 1955 introduced the Art of Aikido to the UK.

The photo opposite of Abbe Sensei was taken in 1963 at a very special demonstration done at the Royal Albert Hall, London, UK.

Seijitsu's Shihan Peter Marsh has met and trained under Abbe Sensei at a number of courses.

Abbe Sensei founded 'The Hut', the first Aiki Dojo to be established here in the UK in the 1950's and both Shihan's Bayliss & Marsh have attended there. Many thanks to Kenshiro Abbe Sensei for bringing us the Art of Aikido.
