Aikido is both an exceptionally powerful and effective Japanese martial art, and a vastly challenging vehicle for self-improvement and spiritual growth. Founded with the purpose of defying the duality of “winner vs loser,” where one’s victory must happen at the expense of another, this non-violent martial art involves the use of sophisticated grappling, joint locks and throws to blend and harmonize with your opponent's ki energy to neutralize an attack without necessitating the use of physical strength or brute force. Aikido movements are natural and simple, focusing on timing and positioning, rather than on physical strength and size. No matter what your current condition, Aikido will help you get in the best shape of your life and find a harmonious way through conflict, not only in the ring, but in your everyday life as well!
