White Rose Aikikai under the direction of Riley Sensei Shihan


Please visit our new website


The Hyde Dojo originally started at the Hyde Lads Club in the early nineties. After the lads club closed we moved to several venues before finally settling at the Longdendale Recreation Centre where we practised for eighteen years until it closed in 2014.

We are now at The Ken Ward Centre, Hattersley.

We practice the traditional style of Aikido, as taught by Morihei Ueshiba or O Sensei. Barry Chapman is the Head Instructor at the club and is supported by instructors Jeff Warner, Scott Derbyshire and Andrew Hodgin.

We are an inclusive, family-friendly club, made up of male and female members from different ages and backgrounds.
