session costs

On the door - each session costs £7.

Paying in advance - 

5 sessions for £30 (£25 for students, juniors, armed forces, and emergency services). 

You can pay in advance for a discounted rate. If you buy a block of sessions like this you can use them whenever you wish, so you will not ‘lose’ the session if you can’t attend. You could use your block to attend once a fortnight, or once a month. This said, the more you train, the quicker you will progress. We give you a card and stamp it when you train; it’s basically a reverse loyalty card.

We take card payments and cash. 

The simplest way is to set up a standing order. This covers all sessions and is the most cost-effective way of paying if you are going to attend most sessions. 


£25 per month for one session a week

£30 per month for two sessions a week

Juniors (under 18) & Students

£15 per month for one session

£25 per month for two sessions

Family packages

We offer a discount for families who want to train with us - a £5 reduction on the monthly fee for every additional family member that joins us. 

For example - if you join your teenager on the mat then the cost is £35 per month (£15 + £25, less the £5 discount). If your partner joins too the cost is £55 (£15 + £25 + £25, less the £10 discounts).

other costs

Aiuchi membership - £25 per year (adult), £15 (junior). 

Aiuchi membership gives you access to all the benefits of aiuchi - our governing body. This includes being able to attend national events and courses, being able to grade, and gives a certain level of insurance cover. Your first four weeks are free and after that membership costs only a couple of pounds per month.

Gis (training outfits): 

£20 - £100 depending on size/quality. You don’t need a gi, you can train in general gym wear, but we’d advise it. We train in plain white gis. You can get one yourself or we can get them for you for around £25. These are standard ‘student’ gis that will last you a good few years - ideal for getting started. If you get a gi yourself we’d recommend a plain white aikido, judo or jiu jitsu gi. We don’t have patches on our gis. You will need a plain white gi to grade or take part in national events/courses.


£10 - £20, depending on the number of people grading and where it is. Gradings to brown or black belts cost more but how much depends on where it is and how many candidates there are.  

National courses: 

£5 - £30, depending on location and type of course.
