Whether you are an adult or a child, man or woman, mature or young, whether you are looking for fun, fitness or for self-defense, you are welcome to come along and watch any of our Aikido classes. Better still, come along prepared to give Aikido a try.
Aikido exercises the whole body. It teaches and develops not only flexibility and co-ordination, but also balance and quick reaction in children and adults alike. Aikido is a method of practical self-defense, so your child will gradually develop the skills of spontaneous reaction and effective movement which will prove useful in evading a threatening situation.
Aikido appeals to many different kinds of people, both as a form of exercise and as a form of self-defence. Aikido does not require physical strength or aggressive spirit. So, regardless of your age, your physical size or your state of fitness, you will soon learn how to immobilise, pin down or throw an opponent with relative ease.
There’s a big bunch of young men and women who are still a little smaller than most of the adults (and interested in hanging out with their friends) but too big for the junior intermediates in the other classes.
