The techniques of aikido are physical forms of defence that require no counterattacks. The contact, gripping and locking techniques of aikido must be used in such a way that they offer effective protection and yet remain non-violent.
With our training, we offer a sport that promotes coordination, flexibility, strength and endurance. It helps prevent back pain and illnesses, counterbalances bad postures and makes you feel physically safe.
At our dojo, training is done in meditation: a silent method of practice in the spirit of the ways of Japanese Zen. A few techniques are repeatedly executed with a high degree of mindfulness – without being observed and corrected.
Besides being an elegant art of self-defence, further very personal strengths unfold in the meditative calm – such as a keen sense regarding oneself and others, serenity, and pronounced will power.
