Aikido Programs

Gain confidence, get into shape, and learn practical self defense

Many people ask “what is Aikido?”  To put it simply, Aikido is invigorating, rewarding, and the best way to find a peaceful resolution to any form of conflict. Our art uses smooth, graceful movements that can be learned by anyone, regardless of age or physical ability.

There is no competition in Aikido – only the constant challenge of becoming greater than you were yesterday.

 

Enabling

Aikido is not about winners or losers. It focuses on developing the individual into a more confident and successful person.

Through discipline, wisdom, and rigorous training, the Aikidoka (student of Aikido) learns how to use martial arts to overcome any conflict they face in life.

Challenging

Aikido works with the individual at their own level of progress, but also offers challenging exercises to get them into great shape.

Through a series of stretches and physical exercises, all Aikidoka leave class in better cardiovascular shape than when they came in.

Practical

The techniques taught in Aikido are derived principally from the samurai fighting art of Aikijutsu. This mainly involved using the momentum of your assailant against them, and subduing them through joint locks, pins, and throws.

Aikido techniques are a manditory part of training for the Tokyo Riot Police, and have been taught to various police and security organizations by our Chief Instructor.

These techniques are taught in a controlled environment by certified Aikido instructors.
