About The Ffenics Aikido Club

The Ffenics Aikido Club family was created on the 27th December 2006 by the legendary Sensei Colin Pike who began practising and teaching in the art of Aikido in 1958 he was  influenced bye Sensei Chiba. But sadly Sensei Colin passed away in April 2013 and is missed by all.

Our Ffenics Family is a successful club and we are continuing in the traditional way of Aikido as Sensei Colin would of want 

All Aikidoka and new members are welcome.

What is AIKIDO anyway

Aikido is a Japanese form of self defence and martial art that uses locks, Holds, throws, and the opponent’s own movements which is very effective. 

Aikido was founded by Morihei Ueshiba, referred to as O-Sensei 

(Great Teacher).

As a young man, Morihei studied many martial arts and developed his own style from all of these different arts.

O-Sensei was, and still is considered by many to be one of the greatest martial artists and a grand visionary whose search for true warriorship led to the creation of Aikido - the art of peace - a progressive and enlightened discipline practiced all over the world.
