Aikido (which translates as ‘the Way of harmonious spirit’) is distinct from other martial arts in a number of ways. It is not competitive and is mainly a defensive art. It works by blending with the force of the attack rather than meeting it face on. Aikido also aims to subdue an attacker without causing them injury in the process.
It has been elegantly described as “The art of defending oneself whilst protecting ones attacker”.
All ages are catered for. The youngest students are still at primary school and the oldest won’t see sixty again!
Several students also attend the various Body Harmony classes.
