Welcome to Dynamic Aikido Nocquet


Our clubs are now closed for festive period

Stay safe and take care


COVID19 Training Update (01/09/2021)

We are now in a position to reopen our clubs, but we will take a phased approach on this one club at a time. Currently Bishop Middleham is active and from next Monday (06/09/2021) our Darlington club will also reopen (see the 'Classes' tab for details)

For training, everyone will need to: -

COVID-19 still carries risk, so we will act on the side of caution with the following measures in place: -

  • Please arrive at each session in your gear ready to train. For new people just comfortable clothing
  • Masks must be worn in and out of training facilities
  • Masks can be taken off at the start of training
  • Students can distance during the warm up
  • You will train with one partner for the duration of the session
  • Mask must be put back on straight after the session
  • There are plenty of mats and space to warm up and keep a safe distance
  • Sanitiser will be provided and must be used by everyone before and after training

Hopefully all other clubs will follow very quickly
