The Tomiki Aiki Kai, Stratford upon Avon, was formed in 1966 and is the longest running martial arts club in the district.
The arts of Taiho Jutsu, Tomiki Aikido and Judo are taught at the Club in Shottery Memorial Hall Stratford upon Avon.
Over the past 45 years the Club has attracted many leading Japanese exponents of Aikido and Judo. The Club has also been successful in sports aikido competitions, winning the British Aikido Association National Team Championships for nine consecutive years from 1973 to 1981. Members also won many individual titles at both Randori and Kata.
Since 1996 the main element of teaching has been Taiho Jutsu, a system of self-defence that includes restraint methods. Brian Eustace designed the system for the Home Office in order to train police instructors in this country. The system is also used in other countries and has been demonstrated in Japan, France, Czech Republic and Switzerland.
The Club is a member of the British Taihi-Jutsu Association and an Associate Member of the British Aikido Association. Senior instructor and qualified coach is Martin Reynolds (5th Dan Taiho Jutsu and 3nd Dan Tomiki Aikido).
