8th Dan, Hanshi. Club Founder
I started Mirfield Martial Arts Club in 1974 on a Sunday night in a gym at Ravensthorpe Boys Club.
Aikido is challenging, great fun and addictive. That’s why I’m still here teaching and learning almost 40 years later.
4th Dan, Club Secretary
I started aikido in 1991 , got hooked immediately and never looked back.Aikido is not just a great defensive martial art but can influence your outlook on life.
4th Dan, Club Chairman
MMAC is a special place and I’m proud to be an Instructor and Chairman. As well as great training, we have a great culture and you can’t help but make good friends
I have studied martial arts in some form all of my adult life. I discovered Mirfield Martial Arts Club and Aikido about 10 years ago. It’s a great place to train and make friends.
Took my two boys to the kids class in 2007 to learn a self defence martial art, and I became transfixed watching the calm and serene flowing motions of the techniques. Decided I had to give it a go, and never stopped. Now I run the kids class, go figure!.
I began Aikido at the late age of 57 and got my 1st dan 10 years later. Began as a means to keep fit… and if it helped in a difficult situation that would be a bonus
1st Dan, Club Treasurer
It’s a pleasure to teach the junior class. Its enjoyable to watch the children grow in technique and confidence.
