Aikido is the martial art of non-violence, based on harmonizing with an attacker’s energy rather than opposing it. Your practice in class will improve your presence and aliveness under pressure, preparing you to perform better in the face of life’s stresses. You will learn first of all to train safely, to fall and roll with ease, and you will develop your strength, endurance, flexibility, and agility. The atmosphere is friendly and cooperative, but you will find the training to be demanding as well. Beginners and advanced students practice together from Day 1.
For your first few classes you may wear any clothing that is comfortable for movement and stretching. Uniforms are available for purchase at any time. We train barefoot, and there are changing rooms available.
