Welcome to Bushin Aikikai!

Bushin Aikikai – literally meaning, “Martial Spirit Aikido Association” in Japanese – is a UK Aikido Association recognised by the British Aikido Board (Aikido’s Governing body in the UK).

The principle club is Aikido Gakko Ueshiba – based in Cardiff, South Wales. The roots of our Aikido heritage are long and the Aikido practiced under the direction of Bernard Harding sensei (6thdan) is of a high technical standard with a respect for the etiquette and discipline which are an important part of the Japanese Martial Art we practice.
