Aikido is a self defence martial art from Japan using clear concise teaching,
Ideal for beginners Aikido explained in the words of Chida Soke:
“A smaller and weaker person should be able to use Aikido effectively even when confronted by a larger and more powerful attacker. The point is to train to find ones strongest and most centred position, while learning to be sensitive to the weakness of the attacker.
Through training in the Kihon Dosa, which are basic movements, we learn how to be strong and centred without excess tension or strength, eventually, being able to keep centred while moving freely and executing techniques.”
