欅 KEYAKI AIKIDO
Aikido is a Japanese martial art for training body and mind through joint practice. Aikido translates to the way of unifying energies.
In Aikido an attack is not blocked but redirected by flowing and seemingly effortless movements. This is achieved by blending with the motion and intent of the attacker while remaining calm and balanced. Aikido is not about winning and losing, hence there are no competitions in Aikido.
We are a group of enthusiastic Aikido practitioners who train together to improve and enjoy themselves.
Adult newcomers are welcome all year round to join our Aikido training.
For beginners, wearing sports clothes with long pants is just fine, or a white martial arts suit if available. An advanced Aikidoka usually wears a black belt instead of a white one and/or a blue or black hakama, a traditional samurai pantskirt.
Feel free to ask for a free try-out or further information!
