We're sorry, but this activity is over. The last meeting was Thursday, December 1, 2016.
Aikido is a modern Japanese martial art. Its meaning is often translated as ?The Way of Harmonizing Energy.? Aikido can be practiced by people of all ages, with varying levels of athletic ability, as its emphasis is not on ?winning? or overpowering one?s partner. Its techniques are powerful, yet focus on protecting the attacker from injury. In addition to the application of throws and joint locks, practitioners learn to take falls and receive techniques without injury. Aikido teaches focus, respect, and discipline in addition to the physical benefits of strength, balance, and body coordination.
