No matter who you are, where you're from, what your size, shape, or age is, everyone can learn Aikido. This viable martial discipline, Aikido, uses blending and redirecting techniques, Jujitsu joint locks and boxing elements to keep this martial art applicable for all people. Whether you are seeking a combat martial art as a military or law enforcement professional, or a martial art that promotes self-defense for women, flexibility, strength building, and coordination – Aikido can do that.
Classes are ongoing and progressive in nature. Teaching staff assist new students who can start at anytime, and at any level of fitness.
