A dynamic martial art for peaceful conflict resolution.
Aikido literally means "the way of harmony with ki". At our friendly dojo we practice ki-aikido – also known as shin shin tōitsu aikido (aikido with mind and body unified). Our classes help develop an understanding of ki (energy, intentionality) to lead opponents by moving together, rather than colliding or fighting.
Using principles drawn from Japanese yoga, the goal of our practice is to have free use of mind and body. We strive to be be natural, effective and harmonious in our actions and interactions with others while developing skills for self-defence and daily life in a safe and co-operative environment.
Join a class to improve your co-ordination and balance, develop flexibility and dexterity, and learn skills that you can use to improve your physical and mental health.
