Club Champions

The first Senior Nationals organised by the BAA were in 1968 at the National Sports Centre, Crystal Palace. A club from Epsom and Ewell were crowned club champions.

The Leeds Aikido club is the most successful senior club with 19 National championships. The Stratford on Avon club won the club championship for 11 years from 1971 to 1981 (in 1979, they partnered with the Redditch club).
