Aiuchi first started a club in Huntingdon in or around 1999. It was originally taught by Sensei David Evans. Sensei Derek Culligan took the helm c2001. When Derek decided that the climate in Australia was more to his liking the club was forced to close. All Aiuchi instructors are unpaid and have day jobs, which can sometimes make teaching a club difficult. As there was no local instructor able to take the club over it was forced to close.
Keith Cooper, who once trained at the Huntingdon club in the late 90s, moved back to the area in 2009. He was running the Bedford club, but when the opportunity presented itself he then reopened the Huntingdon club in 2015.
Thursdays, 8 - 9.30
The venue is halfway down Barford Avenue and is next to a church.
The Bedford club was opened in 2003 by Keith Cooper and David Evans. Over the years since the club has been taught by a number of different instructors - Clare Evans, Graham Cox, Sarah Towner and Dominic Zeal. Some graded to instructor level with the club.
Claire and David currently teach at Keele University, Graham at the London College of Communication, Sarah in Harrow and Dom in Kentish Town.
The Bedford club is currently taught by Tor, Sam, and Keith

Huntingdon kids club
Children from year 2 and above are able to attend.
The club is normally full and operates a waiting list. Please contact us to find out if there are any spaces and/or to be added to the waiting list.
The club is taught by Keith and Zoe.
Our kids club runs during term time in the school hall. The club runs for the benefit of the school - so all mat fees are donated to the school to help it buy those little extras that help the school. Since we opened the club in 2016 we have been able to donate several thousand pounds to the school.
