Puttenham Aikido was formed in 2004 when a pilot course of six sessions began on 9th June at Marwick Hall.   This is located in the historic, rural village of Puttenham, situated near Guildford in Surrey. Its creation was largely due to the inspiration and determination of Puttenham School mum, Claire Orsman.

Claire and Adrian first met professionally through the Cosmopolitan Health and Fitness Show held annually in London.

Although noted for its ancient Priory, Puttenham is also becoming famous for:

PUTTENHAM FAMILY AIKIDO

"Family Aikido with Adrian"

Regular classes are held on Wednesday's the afternoon.  The emphasis is on fun with basics and natural body movement, this leads to a good posture and a sound self defence structure for the student, building self awareness and self confidence.  The aerobic content of the classes help and improve fitness and the general well being of the student.

Aikido is essentially, a non-violent martial art.  It encourages harmony and avoidance of confrontation.  Force is never opposed by force. Resolving a conflict quiescently is better for all concerned, and students soon learn how to improve their self-awareness, and with the techniques learnt, also grow self-confidence. In this Aikido teaches self-defence.

Aikido is one of today’s fastest growing recreational activities with Japanese origins that go back many centuries.  The Aikido as practiced today includes techniques from many of the ancient fighting methods taught, used and perfected by the Samurai in feudal Japan.

Aikido principles are based on exploiting the weaknesses of an opponent.  Joints, posture and the mind can all be vulnerable areas when attacked or challenged.  In essence, Aikido is turning an opponents’ power against themselves, by using the exact degree of control required to neutralise their energy without inflicting undue harm.
