Aikido

Overview

Aikido is a soft martial art, which teaches techniques of self-defense. This martial art is built around the concept of blending your body and energy with the body and energy of an attacker. Aikido is a non-violent system of not only self-defense but also personal development. Club members strive to enhance their abilities through constant, sincere training.
