Association of Ki Aikido


The Association of Ki Aikido (AKA) is an organisation dedicated to the practice and promotion of Ki Aikido.

The club was founded in 1986. Sensei Charles Harris took over as chief instructor in 1989. He has been a student of Aikido since 1980 and currently holds a 6th Dan (black belt).

He is also the Aikido Representative on the Amateur Martial Association Technical Committee.

We are members of Aikido for Daily Life, the British Aikido Board and Aiki Extensions.
