Congratulations to Ethan and Lachlan with their Yellow Belt grading

Congratulations to Suzanne on achieving her Yellow belt.

A very warm welcome to Chris a former student colleague of mine.
Chris who is a Shodan in aikido is now a member of our club.

We also welcome Troy and Cozette. Troy is a Hakama senior with fourteen years experience in aikido.

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 practises 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 exercises.
