The following sports clubs are run by SU Sport. The content is managed by each individual club.
Strath Aikido is a long established combat club at the University, open to all students, staff and graduates. We have strong links with Yudan Nashi Kan Club and train on a weekly basis during term with their qualified instructors.
The sport of Aikido consists of hand and body techniques (taijutsu), which are used along with strikes to unbalance an opponent in order to throw or immobilise them with a lock. Aikido has its roots in the ancient warrior arts of Japan, particularly kenjutsu, jojutsu and ju-jutsu. The techniques rely on skill and the use of the opponent’s force against them, rather than brute strength. This means anyone can do aikido regardless of shape, size or gender.
We are open to students from all backgrounds and abilities. Whether you are a complete beginner or have been involved for years, we can't wait to welcome you at our club training.
