Bognor Birdman Rally
Aikido Demo 2015


Bognor Birdman Rally aikido demo 2015 by junior and adult members of the Arun Aikido Club

These demo's were organised and led by Sensei Natasha Hadwick 1st Dan, who is the club junior instructor. Sensei Robin Wilden 2nd Dan, who is the adult club instructor also took part. 

The Bognor Birdman Rally is a unique event that takes place every year. Humans dressed as flying machines leap off the pier in an attempt to travel the furthest distance. Unfortunately most just plummet straight into the sea, but some glide a little way :)

Why Do They Do It?

For charity of course... people take part in  strange events all over the world to raise money for worthy causes :)

Why An Aikido Demo?

The Bognor Birdman Rally aikido demo 2015 takes place to support the event. Many local groups take part to help attract thousands of people to Bognor Regis for weekend celebrations.

The Arun Aikido Club gave their first demonstration at the Birdman Rally in 1992, and have taken part several times over the years.

Thanks to Arion Gadd for taking the following pictures.
