Welcome to Shinko Aikido


Shinko Aikido is an Aikido club formed in 2009 by Sensei Ashley Scholefield, a direct student of Shihan Shane Riley 7th Dan, Head of the White Rose Aikikai. Located in Morley, Leeds we are also easily accessible to students from Pudsey, Dewsbury, Bradford, Wakefield, Huddersfield,Halifax and thoughout West Yorkshire and North Yorkshire.

Shinko Aikido is under the direction of Sensei Shane Riley 7th Dan and the White Rose Aikido association,together are part of the BAB (British Aikido Board).





Carrying forward Riley Sensei's style, Shinko Aikido club Leeds train a very 'true to life' form. Many Aikido associations around the world emphasise the long flowing movement, big sweeping circles etc..At Shinko Leeds we believe that BASICS are very important, however the reasons for learning this truely effective martial art should not be overshadowed by excessive philosophy and deep lectures. Aikido is one of the most complex martial arts in the world to learn, however once you reach a basic understanding you will find it very interesting and more importantly FUN to learn.
