What is aiki?

Aikido is a traditional Japanese self defence system that deals with aggression and violence through positive energetic training.

It applies effective martial techniques by using dynamic body movements which blend with an attack to control or neutralize it. As a non-competitive art students practise in a friendly open environment. As well as being an effective self defence aikido focuses on relaxing and freeing the body from stress and tension through natural movements. Regular practise will recharge the body, improve co-ordination, posture, self confidence, concentration and fitness levels
