Aikido is the gentle martial art of harmonious movement. Learn to redirect aggression through circular movements designed to destabilize an attacker or restrict an attacker’s movements in a way that protects the defender as well as the aggressor. Increase mental and physical flexibility through a series of partner exercises designed more than 80 years ago by Morihei Ueshiba, the founder of Aikido. His students brought the art to America and passed it on to many students in Aikido dojo (martial arts studios). Aikido will increase your range of motion in the joints, improve hand eye coordination, and increase well-being through breathing exercises.
Instructor James Jacenich has studied the art for more than 30 years.
