The British Takemusu Aikido Federation (BTAF) is the British branch of the International Takemusu Aikido Federation (ITAF).

Aikido (translating from the Japanese as “Way of Energy Harmony”) is a Japanese martial way. It is a relatively modern art, but its roots are in the martial schools of feudal Japan and the Samurai.

It involves the profound study of Sword, Spear and Empty-handed techniques which lead to a deeper understanding of martial principles used in dealing with conflict.

We study Aikido as a practical and effective martial discipline.
