What is Aikido?
Aikido is a powerful defensive Japanese martial art of joint locks, throws, and pins, emphasizing blending with your opponent's energy. It was developed by Morihei Ueshiba (O'Sensei) in the early to mid 1900s in Japan.
Although Aikido movements are soft, rational, and smooth in nature, by applying a bit of force these can become devastatingly effective. It not only offers spiritual development but also provides exercise and teaches proper etiquette and behavior. The gentle quality of Aikido makes it appealing to men and women and children regardless of age, while its power makes it an effective martial art.
Jiai Aikido is affiliated with Aikido Schools of Ueshiba and offers both beginner and advanced training for men and women ages of all ages.
