About Aikido

Aikido is a traditional Martial art that teaches how to subdue even a much larger aggressor using minimum effort. Aikido practice promotes self-discipline, confidence, awareness, compassion and fitness in a structured, safe and fun environment.

As a non-violent Japanese Martial Art; Aikido is a great way to help children learn to defend themselves, learn about cooperation and foster great social skills.

Our program focuses on helping practitioners to use their minds and bodies to neutralize conflict by developing awareness of how humans think and move and by maintaining a balanced and centered position. 

There are no competitions in Aikido: all practice is cooperative, with each participant working on the development of their skills while helping their partner do the same.
