Membership

Membership of the British Aikido Association is available to individuals and clubs located within the United Kingdom. By applying to join the Association the applicant agrees to abide by the Constitution, Bye-laws and working procedures of the BAA.   Foreign associations or groups located outside the United Kingdom, which have ideals similar to those of the BAA, are welcome to apply for affiliation.  In return the BAA will offer the group certain facilities. Further information may be obtained from the Chairman of the BAA.

Individual Full Membership

There are three rates for individual, or personal, full membership; the relevant rate being dependent upon the applicant’s status. All applicants must belong to a club registered with the BAA. All these memberships are based on a 12-month period beginning at the date the Membership Officer of the Association processes the application. Please allow a minimum time of fourteen working days for processing.  Membership rates applicable are as follows:

Membership Type Price
Annual membership fee for adults (18 years of age and above) £30.00
Annual membership fee for those below 18 years of age £20.00
Concessionary rate (unemployed/full-time education/over 60) £20.00

Applications should be forwarded to the Membership Officer of the BAA via the individual’s club administrator. Membership documentation will be returned to that same club officer. This helps to ensure minimal delays in processing as the local officer will have checked the application and membership fee for accuracy before submitting it and gives the club’s officer the opportunity to ensure that all their members’ applications are processed correctly.
