Welcome to the website for Aikido Mukyokan at Fort Regent, Jersey.
This is the new online home of the Phoenix (Jersey) School for Therapeutic Arts (affiliated to Mukyokan International) offering men, women and children, both able bodied and differently abled the chance to learn AIKIDO, a traditional based Japanese martial art.
AIKIDO, on a physical level, relies on using the attacker’s bodyweight and energy against themselves by using movement, both circular and linear, avoiding the attack, blending with it, thus moving the attacker before employing a series of locks, throw and pins to subdue that person without causing undue harm.
Internally, AIKIDO helps to maintain concentration, creates good posture and body mechanics, nourishes the mind and is a good at fighting stress, by creating a healthy mind and body.
Our fully equipped training facility (DOJO) is situated on the west side of the Gloucester Hall at Fort Regent, Jersey. The dojo is the Graeme Pitman Memorial Dojo is named after the Club’s first Honorary Life President and former Chief officer of Fort Regent Sports and Leisure Centre.
