The Aikido Development Society
was formed over fifty years ago as a non political aikido group that generally follows the teachings of Sensei Tomiki. We now have clubs that follow both classic Tomiki and the newer developed style of Tomiki Aikido know as Shodakan Aikido. Over the years other aikido style clubs have joined our non political group and live in harmony within the organisation.
There are ADS affiliated Clubs & Dojo in all parts of the United Kingdom . We are also internationally linked through the ADS clubs that are affiliated to the Japan Aikido Association and Shodokan Aikido Federation.
The ADS is a founder member of the British Aikido Board and a member of ETAN (European Tomiki Aikido Network) which is a pan-European organisation for the promotion of Tomiki Aikido.
