Welcome to the KATSUJINKEN AIKIDO KAN, we are a Traditional Aikido club practicing in Kilmarnock and Irvine, Ayrshire, and in Glasgow City Centre.
‘Katsujinken’ is a martial philosophy that means literally ‘the sword that gives life’. This is representative of the Spirit and Philosophy of Aikido, where the techniques are designed to neutralise and re-direct an opens energy back to them to empower and overcome their efforts.
By applying principles of Katsujinken, both in theory and in practice, we can be responsible for the use of our skills to inflict minimum damage for maximum effect.
Please feel free to browse our site and if you have any queries or questions please get in touch under the ‘Class Times’ page.
We look forward to hearing from you.
