What is Aikido?
Aikido is a non-violent, non-aggressive traditional Japanese self-defense. The Art of Aikido teaches not to hurt or kill your enemy but to find a common ground (center, point of view). Aikido uses circular and spherical movements in order to deal with aggressive linear attacks. Aikido is a philosophy of action; teaching students how to cope with any type of attack, whether it is mental or physical. Allowing the Aikido practitioner to stay calm, focused and centered while making good choices in the heat of conflict. All of these skills will have a positive effect on all outcomes and aspects of their lives no matter the problem. A great skill to have in the 21st century considering the turbulent times we live in.
