A Completely Defensive Art.

In Aikido, there's no initiating fights. Your movements are determined solely by your opponent's. Simply put, it's a system of counter-measures against practically every kind of attack.

Even if someone is larger than you, you'll know how to disarm & submit them. That's because Aikido uses your opponent's own energy & momentum against them. And the bigger the opponent, the more momentum they generate.

Because of this, Aikido greatly appeals to people who are peaceful in nature, and would never go looking for a fight. Still, it gives peace of mind to know you can defend yourself if a fight ever comes looking for you.

Peaceful. yet extremely powerful.

When performed well, Aikido is practically impenetrable. Even at a very old age, Aikido's founder would disarm and submit large groups of strong, young students in training sessions.

Aikido teaches you to read your opponent's energy, and adapt. When you can do this well, you can read any opponent, and know their moves before they even perform them.

Self-Defense against weapons.
Including knives.

In this course, you'll learn how to defend yourself against a variety of weapons, including knives and blunt objects. You'll also work with wooden practice swords (called ken), and short staffs (called jo)...

All in all it's a unique, fun, and versatile experience.
