Aikido is a non-violent, non-competitive Japanese martial art of self-defense. Its philosophy of respect for life, self-control, and self-discipline, makes aikido an ideal self-defense system.
Through rigorous practice, students acquire physical skills, and the capacity to maintain equanimity and tranquility in situations of crisis and stress in any area of their lives, whether at home, at work, or on the street.
Because aikido is non-competitive, it may be practiced equally well by men and women throughout their lives. Aikido is a system of self-defense and a means towards the education and formation of oneself. It is a way of life.
All styles, traditions and aikidoka are welcome. If you have practiced other Martial Arts in the past, such as Karate, JiuJitsu, Judo, Iaido, Mixed Martial Arts, or are a complete novice to the martial arts world and want to develop the confidence that comes with Martial Skill, come and experience our training.
