We will have a stall and gazebo both days between 11am-5pm where you can come and chat with us and learn some of the key aspects of this beautiful art.

On the Sunday our instructors and students will give a unique aikido demonstration near the bandstand at 11am-12noon... come and watch this amazing art in action!


Arun Aikido Club at the
Bognor Regis Carnival 2014  

The Aikido pirates are at the Bognor Regis Carnival 2014.


Junior and adult members of the Arun Aikido Club gave a series of demonstrations at the Carnival event on 15th June 2014 in West Sussex.

Many thanks to our students and their families for their support. Thanks also Sensei Natasha and Sensei Robin who directed the demonstrations.

Usually the carnival is a procession of local groups as they walk along the seafront and around the town, but... it was rather different this year.

The organisors decided that each group would have a fixed pitch, and they also chose a theme... Pirates :) The event was a great success and thousands of visitors enjoyed the Bognor Regis Carnival 2014 mayhem.

We at the Arun Aikido Club also had a real challenge.

We had to give a demonstration on a road without mats, as we didn't want to damage ours on the rough surface, so... no breakfalls!

How could we demonstrate Aikido without mats? We had an excellent uke in Robin, who managed to stay on his feet... most of the time :)

Thank to our students, and their families who came along to support us, take part, and hand out leaflets. Tony, Robin, Natasha, Samuel, Ajay, Jack, Posey, Maxi, Charlie, Arion, Grahame, Kate, and Roman.

Thanks also to Brad for many of these pictures... its appreciated!

Check out the last picture below for my unique disappearing trick :)

Sensei Natasha is laughing at Sensei Robin... how rude :)

Pirate Grahame deals with Sensei Robin's attack.



Pirate Kate has good elbow control on Sensei Robin and avoids cutlass.



Sensei Natasha removes cutlass from Sensei Robin.



Sensei Robin seems to be the attacker for everything. Are there any other students who would like to get themselves ready to share the uke work?



Another weapon disarm from Sensei Natasha.



Are my eyes blurry or is that Sensei Robin performing an elbow control on Sensei Natasha. I'm glad someone caught this picture... thanks Brad.

This last one is a very rare ninja disappearing move. Unfortunately, I left the toe of my trainers in view. OR a camera trick...

you be the judge :)
