AIKIDO

Aikido is based on the principles of non-violence and non-resistance. It involves throws, locks, and pins that do not damage limbs. Aikido is non-competitive, and does not involve striking or blocking aggressors. This martial art offers insight and resolution to any conflict situation, including verbal arguments and other non-physical conflict.

Aikido is suited for adults and children of all ages. We have active members ranging from 6 through to 70 years of age. Being a true Japanese martial art, weapons such as the sword, the stick and the knife are used to help train practitioners. Defence against these weapons is also taught.

In addition to self-defence and conflict resolution skills, Aikido practitioners can look forward to developing body awareness, 'centering', relaxed movement, and increased confidence.
