The time you invest in Aikido will be quality time. It will enrich every aspect of your life for the better.
Both hemispheres of your brain learn to work together incorporating the intuition and feeling on the right side of the brain with the analytical abilities on the left. You will find yourself becoming much more integrated.
The increased self-confidence & awareness will enable a real feeling of balance and control to emerge in your life.
One of the best remedies for stress is to come to Martin Acton's Aikido Institute. You will benefit a lot more from an hour of Aikido than time spent blankly in front of the TV, worrying, or visiting your local pub.
When you leave Martin Acton's Aikido Institute after your practice you will most likely find you have a fresh outlook on things, an increase in energy and calmness that enables you you influence others in a positive manner.
Your mind, body and character will inevitable change as you progress in your Aikido studies, gaining strength, flexibility and resilience. Increased cardiovascular fitness, respiration and overall muscle tone will allow your energy to flow naturally.
Aikido training not only develops a strong, supple body but a strong supple character as well. You will be able to stand with dignity yet adjust to all of life's challenges. You will be able to keep cool, calm and collected while others are bouncing of the walls. You will keep your balance in the midst of adversity. A balance that is maintained physically, mentally and emotionally.
Another wonderful advantage of coming to Martin Acton's Aikido Institute are the new friends, associates and students who provide a high-quality support system with similar goals and challenges as yourself. Aikido attracts the best people. They are all sincere, easygoing and have a great bond of maturity and humour coming together in an atmosphere of cooperation and camaraderie. We have a strong sense of healthy community that is incorporated into both the Institute and our lives outside.
