Zanshin-kai Aikido was founded in 2002 by sensei Patrick Palmer. At the time it was based at a local College and catered for the whole community in the Sutton Coldfield area but had students from as far afield as Lichfield and Tamworth.
After a number of years at the college, the club moved from location to location not quite finding a permantant home until it finally settled at the Sports Hub (Perry Barr, Birmingham). The Birmingham club as been dormat for a number of years (due to other committemnts), but plans are in place to rekindle the spark and new home is being sought after, giving access to learning to the whole of Birmingham and beyond!
While the above is being actioned, our latest club founded by sensei Palmer is based at Wyre Forest Leisure Centre, Kidderminster. Formed in 2016 it caters for all abilities and all age groups on a twice weekly basis.
Zanshin-Kai Aikido dojo is a members of Go Shin Kai association and are members of the British Aikido Board (BAB).
