What our students say


I wasn’t sure about Aikido to start with but after learning from Sensei Joe and the other instructors here, I got to feel their techniques and knew Aikido was right for me.

David Monagle

I was a bit scared about doing martial arts as I had never done martial arts or even exercised regularly before but the Shudokan and instructors gave me a nurturing environment in which to learn, and I developed fitness and mental toughness that I hadn’t had before
