Aikido is a dynamic Japanese martial art that teaches unification of mind, body and spirit, which helps to bring us back in harmony with nature. Through Aikido training, we become more centered and more aware of our environment.

Founded by Morihei Ueshiba in Japan in the early part of the 20th century, Aikido's philosophy is to protect oneself against aggressive attacks by blending and neutralizing them. In addition to self-defense, Aikido is excellent for physical exercise, emotional well-being and spiritual development.
