This open level class is a great way to learn first - hand about the martial art of Aikido.  Aikido is a modern Japanese martial art developed by Morihei Ueshiba as a synthesis of his martial studies, philosophy, and religious beliefs. Ueshiba's goal was to create an art that practitioners could use to defend themselves while also protecting their attacker from injury.

If you are a beginner, in this 60mins class, you will learn about Aikido through a set of physical exercises designed to demonstrate some of the main principles of Aikido — irimi (entering to meet the opponent), tenkan (body turning to blend and redirect the opponent’s energy) and kuzushi (unba lancing an opponent to prevent further attacks).
For those ready, you will go through a set of standard Aikido drills designed to help you learn how to move in a more efficient manner, how to fall safely and how to interact with your training partner.

Aikido has been translated as The Way of unifying with life energy, The Art of peace, The Way of centering or Moving Zen. It is a martial art that is performed by blending into the motion of the opponent and redirecting the force of the attack. It is also one particular “Path of Truth” in the Buddhist sense. It is a warrior’s path, yet one which leads us to love our opponent, meeting hostility with peaceful reconciliation and bringing harmony into a hostile situation. Aikido strengthens inner power and deepens your connection with others.
