What do I need to Know


I hope the information in this website covers all the information you would need, however if you have any further questions please free to call on 07775 610 464 or e-mail

From my perspective and after 20 years of martial arts experience there are three important questions I always ask. And a teacher should be able to answer these questions to your satisfaction.

  • Who is your teacher (lineage) - Hiroaki Kobayashi. Yasuo Kobayashi, direct student of O'Sensei
  • Where are your grades recognised - Aikikai Hombu Dojo, Japan. Through Kobayashi Dojos, Japan
  • Which governing body are you affiliated with - British Aikido Board (BAB)
