How can we know when we are relaxed? Through simple co-ordinated energy tests with feedback from your instructor during the exercise.

All ages and gender practice equally.

Developed from ancient martial arts Aikido is a non-aggressive, non-competitive and purely defensive art. Physical strength plays no part as resolving conflict in a non violent way is one of the aims of Aikido.

Each student practices to his or her own level of fitness. We practise mind and body co-ordination, relaxation and calmness. Students over time will learn the skills required to engage in dynamic techniques.
