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.

Certainly one of the more eye-catching activities to participate in at Wake Forest, the archery club offers exclusive opportunities with a tight knit group of scholar-athletes, the likes of which are difficult to find elsewhere. With the two options of joining either a competitive varsity club team, or a more relaxed recreational team, the archery program at Wake provides a unique experience for all interested students, regardless of experience. The varsity club team, or the “Deacon Warriors”, have a history of excellence in both regional and national competitions, ranking highly against other schools from all along the east coast. The recreational team experience is more relaxed in terms of scheduling, but both outlets of the program share the same value of camaraderie and passion for the sport. All members of the Archery club, regardless of their bow division, enjoy the benefit of getting together with close friends and relieving academic stress while improving on their talents.”
