After not taking much interest in sport at school my son started Aikido at age 8 and took to it like a duck to water. The instructors are great and my son still loves going 2 years on. The academy is not only great for children though. After watching my son training for a few weeks, I loved the traditional nature of the teaching which resonated with my previous experience in another traditional Japanese martial art and I decided to take to the mat myself. No doubt my youngest will join us on the mat in the very near future! Great academy with great instructors which I can fully recommend.
A dedicated and friendly team who run a very professional, safe and fun school. A fantastic place to learn and challenge yourself. Very highly recommended!
Absolutely amazing, I was having so many issues with my youngest child and thank goodness I found the answer here. Through this academy my son found direction, focus and a total shift in his attitude took place. He learned respect and discipline while at the same time having fun and making friends! The instructors are fantastic and so welcoming despite my worries with my son; I am supported and feel valued by everyone there. Fantastic people and facilities in my opinion this academy is second to none!
I can write pages in order to describe how professional and amazing Shudokan Black Belt Academy is, but the best way to find out, is by going there yourself. The trainers love their art, they are kind, friendly, extremely funny, patient and most importantly not arrogant (which is unusual, considering how cool they are). Each of them is different and unique but all of them are equally awesome. This dojo offers great value for money and I highly recommend it to everyone. So if you are willing to learn a very interesting and majestic martial art, learn how to protect yourself and become stronger both physically and mentally, look no further, this is the place for you. A high quality training is guaranteed. To all the senseis keep up the great work and thank you for everything!!
