There are BAA approved Clubs & Dojo in all parts of Britain.On an international basis the BAA is affiliated to the Japan Aikido Association. Under the auspices of the BAA, international instructors are brought to Britain at regular intervals to further promote and develop Aikido in this country.
The BAA has a formal grading syllabus and promotion structure. It’s gradings are recognised by the JAA and are equal to their standards. The BAA sets qualification requirements for examiners, judges and referees and maintains a register of all such officials and the standards they have attained.
