" Bracknell News 1966 " article on the opening of the Bracknell Dojo ->. Click here for article
The Bracknell Aikido Club was first established in 1966, in the old Victoria Church Hall, Church Road. Near The Old Manor Pub. The Church and the Hall have long since been demolished.
The dojo then moved to the St Andrews Hall which was located behind the Binfield Road Post Office.

The Bracknell Aikido Dojo ( training hall ) welcomes both men and women over the ages of 16 years to 97 yrs. We are sorry to say that we no longer offer childrens classes.

The Bracknell Aikido Club is a part of the "Ellis Schools of Traditional Aikido"

Aikido from its inception to Britain in 1955 operated a system of coloured belts to indicate the grade or achievment of a student.This system was applied by every dojo and every student. Read the following article on the history of " Origins of The Coloured Belt System ". Click here


Henry Ellis Sensei ( retired from teaching ) and Derek Eastman Sensei started their study of Aikido in the 1950s at the now famous Hut Dojo London. Both Sensei's ( teachers ) hold 6th dan International BiranKai ~ AikiKai Hombu.
