Description

Date:Every Thursday from Thu 8 Sep 2016 - Thu 8 Dec 2016

Time:19:30 - 21:00

Venue:DanceHouse

Teacher:Dublin Aikido

Aikido is a Japanese martial that aims at resolving conflicts in a non-violent manner. Aikido is performed by blending with the motion of the attacker and redirecting the force of the attack rather than opposing it head-on. This requires very little physical energy, as the aikido practitioner 'leads' the attacker's momentum using entering and turning movements. The techniques are completed with various throws or joint locks.

Practice is performed in pairs in a cooperative way. Practice aims at improving oneself as much as at helping the partner improve. More than an efficient self-defense system, Aikido is a personal development tool that will help you develop physical abilities such as agility, speed, economy of motion and flexibility as well as mental qualities such as self-confidence, focus, awareness and calmness when facing challenges or conflicts.

All practitioners of all levels are welcome and complete beginners can join at any time of the year. All our instructors are officially affiliated to the Aikikai (the Aikido World Headquarters) and travel to Japan on a regular basis to train intensively with the Japanese masters.
