Aikido is a highly refined martial art, developed in the last century as a means of self-defence and spiritual training. Aikido develops coordination of mind and body.
Through its philosophy and techniques, Aikido brings us in harmony with our environment, other people and ourselves. Unlike many martial arts aikido requires no advantage in strength or speed, and is practiced successfully by people of all ages and abilities.
Aikido practice develops flexibility, coordination, concentration, improved health and fitness, effective communication skills and self-esteem.
