What is Aikido?
Aikido is a martial art and spiritual discipline where conflict is resolved harmoniously through the redirection of the attacker's energy.
Are There Tournaments?
Aikido is non-competitive; there are no tournaments or trophies. The goal is “victory over one’s self”.
Are Size and Strength Important?
People of all ages and sizes and of all levels of physical fitness and athletic ability can benefit from Aikido. It does not require great physical strength.
What are the benefits?
The benefits go well beyond physical fitness and learning a self-defense. The long-term benefits transcend the physical and extend into all aspects of life. Aikido training takes place in the dojo, but as students train they begin to realize the daily applications of the art.
