How to get Club News

We use five ways to spread Club News such as courses and cancelled classes:

1. Announcements in class

2. A monthly e-News sent by email to those who are on the main distribution list. This list is a automated system and you may subscribe here. When you join us and provide a email address (exc Juniors) we will add you if you haven't already subscribed.


3. Using Twitter @traffordaikido


4. Using Facebook - Trafford Aikido

5. WhatsApp Group for members 18 and over. To apply email Andrew with your mobile number. The Group will only be used about the Club and Aikido. Be aware others in the Group can see your number. You can opt in when you complete our application forms on the Risk Form.

Email -


Our Association the Lancashire Aikikai uses:

a. Subscribe to their email list. The Aikikai will add you themselves from your membership form but doing it yourself is quciker.


b. @lancaikikai


c. Facebook LancashireAikikai


So we suggest you select the best way(s) you like to receive information from us now.
