Dojos & Venues

**DUE TO THE CORONAVIRUS PANDEMIC WE’RE PRACTICING OUTDOORS **

Yudan Nashi Kan aikido club holds two practices sessions a week in Glasgow’s city centre and west end. Due to current restrictions, we’re only practicing outdoors. Our dojo (venues) addresses and practice times are listed below. Please check out the Training FAQ and get in touch if you’d like more information about practicing with us. Practice times (which are weather dependant) are announced in our “Class Times” WhatsApp group.

Please read and follow the guidance in our training during covid page before coming to practice.

Victoria Park (Bowling Greens)

We are hosting a weekly class (adhering to current Scottish Government Coronavirus guidance) in bowling greens in Victoria Park (in the west-end of Glasgow).

Practice is open to everyone and takes place at 11:00-13:00 hrs on Sundays.

If the weather is not suitable on a Sunday, the class will switch to 10:00 hrs on Saturday.  The day of practice is usually decided by Wednesday, so if you would like to join us, either get in touch or join our “Class Times” WhatsApp group to find out what day the class is on.

If you’re cycling, there is an underpass that provides direct access to the Park from Victoria Park Drive South (on the southern perimeter of the park).

Jordanhill is the closest train station and from the City centre the following westbound First buses will get you to or near the Park: 1A, 1B or 1D go past Victoria park and nos. 2 and 3 stop a short distance away on Dumbarton Road. First Buses’ route maps provide more detail about these services.

We are hosting a weekly class (adhering to current Scottish Government Coronavirus guidance) in the outdoor sports pitch at Glasgow Caledonian University (in Glasgow’s city centre).

Practice is open to everyone and takes place at 19:30-21:00 hrs on Tuesdays.

The outdoor sports pitch is located behind the North Hanover building and can be accessed via the steps between the North Hanover and Govan Mbeki buildings off the main concourse in the University. North Hanover is building no 5 and Govan Mbeki is building no. 4 in GCU’s campus map.
