Do you feel more comfortable starting with a group of other beginners?

As a martial art, Aikido aims to neutralize
an attacker’s energy instead of inflicting harm.

This is done by entering into and blending with the attacker’s energy or Ki and then leading and redirecting that energy with a relaxed, but powerful flowing motion.

The result is the aggressor being thrown to the ground or held in a joint lock that neutralizes the attack. When used correctly, Aikido is an exemplary self defense form.

Masters of Aikido are among the finest martial artists
and kindest human beings in the world.
