Aikido is a Japanese martial art that focuses on flowing with an attacker’s force rather than resisting it. Roughly translating to the Art of Peace or Way of peace, Aikido can be learned by anyone regardless of size, age or gender. Men, women, children, and seniors all find Aikido appealing because its techniques are not based on fighting or using one’s strength against another’s.
Techniques are flowing and circular with a focus on the path of least resistance. Students can learn to defend themselves without resorting to violent or aggressive behavior. Self-esteem, concentration, awareness and focusing power are greatly enhanced, allowing balance and calmness to be maintained in all situations. Henderson Aikido has an atmosphere that is fun, friendly and stimulating. Come try it for your self!
