Aikido is an effective non-violent self defence system. Aikido uses the entire body to create spherical motion around a stable, energised centre. Though it appears to be using only one part of the body, it’s actually using the whole body. Techniques when properly executed are spectacular, by precise use of leverage, inertia, gravity, and the action of centrifugal and centripetal forces. Ultimately, it is the energy of the attack itself which brings down the attacker. Classes available on Saturday from 9:30am.
Tuesday and Thursday Aikido classes:- Also known as “Tomiki” Aikido (after our founder) our principled style combines foundational techniques, adaptations for competition, and traditional kata that include weapons, self-defence and mental discipline training. There are many clubs around Australia affiliated with Oceania Aikido Kyoungi Renmei, our regional peak body and founding member of the Worldwide Sports Aikido Federation.
