I took an Aikido class to complement my other workouts. I’ve discovered that I can do more than I knew I could do. I feel more relaxed and aware. Your reactions become natural. Aikido is very challenging and rewarding. As you advance, you set goals and become proud of yourself.
The Dojo is an extremely encouraging environment for adults. Everyone is welcomed as they were once welcomed which is why this Dojo has existed for decades.
I started my practice 8 years ago with my daughter. I liked the ideals of Aikido as an Art for the betterment of all, not just the martial application. I’ve become much more centered emotionally, mentally and spiritually. I’ve overcome some problems with balance and experienced tremendous overall health benefits.
I wanted to study a Japanese Art other than Karate. One of the great things about Aikido is that a smaller person can learn effective self-defense because it is about technique. Everything learned in the Dojo affects your life in a positive way. The benefits are tremendous and continue as you continue to learn
