‘The way of the warrior’

Sensei Dave Kelly

Senior Instructor
Sensei Dave Kelly


3rd Dan : Aikido


Now firmly established as the Aikido side of classes offered at Bushido Martial Arts Association, Dave has set about developing a very focused group. Having spent a few years building his class Sensei Dave Kelly is looking to expand his group and the appeal of Aikido and is looking for fresh students to progress this very well run class. Aikido is a modern martial art developed by Morihei Ueshiba as a synthesis of his martial studies, philosophy and religious beliefs. Aikido is often translated as “the way of unifying life energy” or as the “the way of harmony”

Aikido offers its practitioners many advantages over other martial arts and is particularly useful for women as its techniques work by using the opponents energy and momentum against them. This non-reliance on strength to overcome an opponent thus affords the slighter smaller student a greater control over much larger and stronger adversaries.

These great classes are held every Wednesday and Friday at the Dojo, there is no need to book a session just bring your enthusiasm and turn up.
