How to get Club News

We use five ways to spread Club News such as courses and cancelled classes:

1. Announcements in class

2. A monthly e-News sent by email to those who are on the distribution list. This list is a automated system and you may subscribe here. When you join us and provide a email address (exc Juniors) we will add you if you haven't already subscribed.


3. Using Twitter @aikidotraff is more about pushing information / news out than using it to interact.


4. Using Facebook - Trafford Aikido

5. WhatsApp Group for members 18 and over. To apply email Andrew. The Group will only be used about the Club and Aikido. Be aware others in the Group can see your mobile number.

Email -


The Junior Section for important notices will hand out a note at the end of class.

Our Association the Lancashire Aikikai uses:
