Aikido for Adults and Teenagers



On the surface, Aikido is a martial art concerned solely with self defence. Students learn immobilisation techniques and throwing techniques to a wide variety of attacks, from the front or from behind, with or without weapons, by one or many attackers. Weapons training necessarily partners the open handed training and involves the Aiki sword and staff.


At its deeper levels, Aikido is an holistic approach to physical, mental and spiritual development.

The self defence techniques, when studied correctly, provide growth for the body, mind and soul.


Aikido uses anatomy and simple physics to produce its many techniques which include fluid self defence principles and powerful shapes. It may be practised primarily for the self defence component, as the techniques are effective and practical in modern times, or to study body movement in its purest form. Aikido may alternatively be studied to investigate the influences of culture and philosophy on martial arts and vice versa, that is, the effects of martial arts training on one’s own spirit.


Most of the classes we teach are geared toward adult learners and mature minded teenagers. Aikido helps students to develop a stronger, more flexible, balanced and coordinated body. It offers an alternative to the often more aggressive and competitive styles of martial arts.
