Aikido at the Center

Aikido at the Center offers traditional Aikido training for adults and children.  Aikido is suitable for all ages. It is a non-threatening martial art. Aikido is practiced in a friendly and cooperative atmosphere. The goal of Aikido is to neutralize aggression rather than increase it.

 Why Aikido is different.

Unlike the striking and kicking martial arts, the aim of Aikido is not to injure or kill an opponent. Instead, Aikido teaches how to resolve conflict as safely as possible. Aikido uses graceful but powerful locks, throws and pins that quickly immobilize an attacker without causing permanent injury. This is why Aikido is called the Art of Nonresistance or The Non Fighting Art.

During an Aikido class, students practice techniques for blending with and neutralizing punches, grabs, and assaults. The training develops balance, flexibility, coordination, and self confidence in the face of an attack.  

The ultimate goal of Aikido training is to master a calm and confident approach to conflict--a courageous and compassionate spirit that wholeheartedly confronts the challenges and difficulties of life.
