What is Aikido?

Aikido is a dynamic Japanese Martial Art that focuses on blending with an opponents energy rather than resisting and colliding  with it. We use joint locks, throws and pins to deal with an attacker's assault. Regardless of how the assailant comes at us with a punch, kicks or a shove, we lead it in such a way that the least amount of damage is done to all involved. In Aikido we are concerned about the well-being of our opponent, the other bystanders, as well as our own safety. 

This form of Aikido trains the student to co-ordinate their mind and body, allowing them to connect with an opponent, feel their energy, and direct it in such a way that the attacker is restrained in a joint lock or thrown so that the student can escape safely. We teach how to relax in a healthy way. To stand, sit and move in a natural, authentic and effective manner. In Aikido physical strength and speed are not, as important as they are, in other martial arts. Aikido instead focuses on improving our balance, timing & co-ordination.. This training is beneficial for self-defence as it raises confidence, promotes clarity of thought, and teaches the student how to create win-win outcomes. We have both children and adult courses available, see which lesson would suit you best on our schedule page.
