Our Background

Hallamshire Aikido Club was opened back in 1994 by its first instructor Steven Newton. The first venue was Pond Forge Sports Centre in the heart of Sheffield. The club has since had a number of homes, and has recently moved to the ‘De Hood’ boxing and fitness facility on the site of the old King Edwards Primary School at Manor Top, where it is run by Mark Headleand Sensei. (For directions to the Dojo click here.)
