Training times & costs

When and where?

If you are thinking of training for the first time we would be grateful if you could contact us in advance. We like to ensure a senior student is available to provide one-to-one support (and a warm welcome) during your first class.

We train on Tuesday evenings 7.15 pm to 8.45 pm.

Please arrive at least 10 minutes before practice begins so that we can get the mats laid out in the hall and have everything ready to start at 7.15 prompt.

We are located at Cavendish Community Primary School, Cavendish Road, West Didsbury, Manchester M20 1JG (off Burton Road, and a two minute walk from Burton Road Metrolink station).

How much do Sankaku Aikido classes cost?

We aim to keep the training costs simple and clear – much like our approach to Aikido.

The standard training fee is £5 per class. It’s as simple as that.

Fees for beginners

For new beginners to Aikido we offer a discounted trial period of £10 for the first 4 classes. Aikido is a martial art that can be difficult to judge after just one class. Therefore to encourage new students to try a few classes before making any decisions about future training we offer the discounted trial for four weeks.

Annual membership

There is an annual membership fee (currently £30) which includes membership of our parent association Lancashire Aikikai. The fee also includes membership of the British Aikido Board. This connects the club with the wider Aikido community and enables the club to gain support from the association and governing body. It also enables students to train at any other clubs that are part of Lancashire Aikikai.
