Oliver Thorne 3rd Dan Aikikai, is pleased to offer new regular Sunday training sessions at The River Room in Halton.
Aikido is a non-violent martial art which focuses on the development and transformation of the practitioner in the face of conflict situations. It is a non-competitive practice where each person takes time to learn through co-operation, to fall, roll, throw and strike in interesting and challenging ways, including through traditional weapons forms. Ultimately, aikido practice is not only about self-defence but it is also a process of self-transformation.
Oliver has over ten years of practice on a daily basis with extensive periods of uchi deshi (live in student) in both Europe and Japan totaling more than three years. He travels regularly to international seminars in Europe and to Japan to continue his training. Over the years he has had the great opportunity of training with some of the world’s most renowned aikido teachers. He is the Technical Director of Lancaster Aikido Club and Chief Instructor at Lancaster University Aikido Club.
These classes are open to beginners and more experienced practitioners alike.
