Aikido in HA2
What is Aikido?
Japanese Art of Aikido is an extremely efficient self defence system utilising balance-taking and posture-breaking movements to achieve joint locks, pins and throws.
Aikido is very different from disciplines such as Kick Boxing, Karate, Taekwondo, Kung Fu or Mixed Martial Arts where there is emphasis on kicking, punching or wrestling.
By choosing Aikido don't expect to spend hours kicking bags or learning boring katas!
In essence Aikido is turning an opponents power against him.
Is Aikido for me?
Because Aikido is a purely defensive Martial Art, it is the preferred choice for many professionals who experience problems with violence in the line of their work.
The law is clear that you are able to defend yourselves from attack but only by using the minimum force necessary.
The police for example are taught basic moves that are quick to learn, but Aikido is equally suitable for other 'customer facing' professionals such as: teachers, doctors, nurses, paramedics, firemen, and others in public services owing to its passive but effective nature.
Aikido is particularly well suited as a self-defence for women as size and strength are not important issues.
