Come and discover Aikido, which is a modern Japanese martial art that emphasizes blending with the attacker, rather than confronting the attacker with hard techniques such as punches and kicks.
Students of Aikido practice how to use their body and mind in a natural and optimally efficient way. Aikido includes many responses to different types of attacks including throws, holds, joint locks, pins, and disarming techniques.
