Welcome to Aikido Gakko Ueshiba

We are an Aikido martial arts club in Cardiff, South Wales. We practice and teach traditional Aikido. The club was founded over 30 years ago by Bernard Harding Sensei 6th Dan.

The Norman Evans and Max Graham Memorial Course

Memorial Course

Norman and Max

Fellow aikidoka from Bristol, Barrow In Furness as well as local clubs in Cardif took the opportunity to remember two great characters of Aikido Gakko Ueshiba who are sadly missed. Sessions were taken by Sensei Bernard Harding and Sensei Peter Gillard and were enjoyed by all who attended the course.

We are pleased to have raised £440 which will be donated to the charities that cared for Norman and Max.

Below are some pictures from the day.
