Aikido

The Way of Spiritual Harmony

Aikido is a modern Japanese martial art developed by Morihei Ueshiba as a synthesis of his martial studies, philosophy, and religious beliefs.

The Aikido we practice includes throws, joint locks and immobilisations, all carried out in a ‘Self Defence’ manner.

The weapons of Aikido, Bokken (Wooden Sword) and Jo (a 4´ wooden staff), are used extensively to underpin the basic precepts of traditional Aikido movements.
