What Is Aikido

Aikido is a modern Japanese martial art developed by Morihei Ueshiba (O’Sensei) as a fusion of his martial studies, philosophy, and spiritual beliefs. Aikido is often translated as "the way of unifying (with) life energy or as "the way of harmonious spirit.” O’Sensei’s goal was to create an art that practitioners could use to defend themselves, while also protecting their attacker from injury.

Benefits of Aikido

Aikido has many physical and psychological benefits. The versatility of the art makes it ideal for students of all ages. Benefits include: • Self Defense Training – used by police forces around the world
• Gain Agility and Flexibility
• Great Exercise
• Learn about Japanese Cultural and the Bushido Way
• Build Discipline
• Great fun
