Aikido

Aikido is a non-competitive method of self-defense based on relaxed coordination of mind and body, rather than strength. It teaches students how to harmonize with and redirect an opponent’s movement and energy. Although its primary aim is protection against physical attacks, the philosophy and techniques of Aikido can also be used to deflect everyday worries. At its gentlest, Aikido helps you remain calm in stressful situations; at its most strenuous, Aikido is the art of dancing with a partner who is trying to hurt you. Aikido promotes awareness, good posture, agility, and a peaceful mind, while improving physical and mental health in a low-impact environment. Aikido can be studied by people of all ages and is ideal for women and children.
