At it’s root, Aikido is a form of self defense. Aikido aims to completely de-escalate conflict and can be effectively used by people of all sizes, shapes, and ages as its does not rely on speed or raw strength. It is based on centuries of refined martial thinking and application.
Aikido uses throws, joint locks, strikes, and pins to immobilize one or more attackers. It is non-violent and non-competitive in nature because Aikido techniques do not clash with an attack when it is presented, but rather moves the focus of the attack away where it becomes harmless.
While Aikido is a martial art, it is much larger than a simple art of self-defense; it is a way of being that promotes peace, balance, spiritual growth, and health in all aspects of life.
Aikido is a great martial art for kids, teens, adults, seniors, those with special needs, everyone.
Aikido training is great for any age and ability as it develops a strong body, strong sense of will, strong sense of self, and a peaceful mind.
