Martial Arts

Aikido
Aikido is a non-aggressive martial art, which teaches you self-defence, calmness, confidence and awareness. Built on a foundation of respect for all and self-discipline, Aikido Yuishinkai provides an opportunity for mental and physical training. Women and men of all ages and fitness levels are invited to experience the benefits of martial arts training in a friendly and safe environment.

Aikido Shodokan
Aikido Shodokan can be defined as a blend of sport, self-defence and physical exercise. Shodokan Aikido promotes self-confidence, self-discipline, agility and general fitness. It is suitable for men, women and children as physical strength is not a main requirement as the power for a throw comes from the momentum of the attack.

Judo
Japanese Martial Arts Technique: skills in grappling and ground wrestling involving throws and trips. No striking involved. Judo can be enjoyed by all ages! Judo means “The gentle way” and can be used as a form of exercise or the player can become a competition player.

Jujitsu
Japanese Martial Arts Technique: similar to Aikido and Judo but includes kicking and punching. Students are encouraged to use what they already know and build on their strengths while keeping their mind open to all possibilities. In the Dojo, students will learn to trust their own ability and respect the abilities of others, learn to set goals and work hard to achieve them and learn to defend themselves.

Mauy Thai Kick Boxing
Thailand Martial Arts Technique: Very aggressive attack technique involving kicking, punching, elbows and knees. This is a tough form of kickboxing and for this reason the age group begins at 14.
