What if you could develop your capacities to feel, flow, and respond? What if you could cultivate more power, wisdom, and beauty in life? What would this super-version of you be like? Aikido is an instrument for this evolution.
Aikido is martial art grounded in a spirit of unity. It's a complete path of personal mastery, and an embodied practice for working with ever-changing conditions, conflict, and stress. There’s no better way to stay fit in body and mind, and become a more fully developed person in harmony with life.
In a typical practice, you'll learn to get centered, blend into attack, flow with it, and apply yourself with power, sense, and grace. This requires us to develop largely unexercised aspects of ourselves, and work with past conditioning that has limited us.
Aikido was founded by Morihei Ueshiba (1883-1969), known to students of Aikido as "O-Sensei." O-Sensei developed Aikido as an expression of his inspiration — that martial arts can be a path that affirms life and cultivates connection.
"Everyone has a spirit that can be refined, a body that can be trained in some manner, a suitable path to follow. Foster peace in your own life, and then apply the art to all that you encounter."
Morihei Ueshiba, Founder of Aikido (1883-1969)
