Aikido London - London Aikido Dojo
What is Aikido?
A Japanese form of self-defense and martial art that uses locks, holds, throws, and the opponent's own strength.
Aikido is very different from disciplines such as Karate, Kick Boxing, Taekwondo, Kung Fu, Mixed Martial Arts, Muay Thai, Kempo and Krav Maga where there is emphasis on kicking, punching or wrestling.
By choosing Aikido don't expect to spend hours kicking bags or learning boring katas!
Aikido is versatile with flowing circular movements and you will practice a variety of differing attacks and defences (applications) during a typical evenings training. In essence Aikido is turning an opponents power against him.
Is Aikido for me?
Aikido techniques are based on movement, timing and balance. We use the continuous flow of a circle, the angles of a triangle, and the stability of a square to create technique that is not dependent on physical superiority.
Through partnered practice and the study of Aikido principles, we develop strength and flexibility. You do not need to have any martial arts experience, just a willingness to learn to protect yourself.
