What is Aikido?

Aikido is a Japanese martial-art that uses the attacker’s energy to apply throwing and immobilizing techniques. We practice defenses against both unarmed and armed attackers in a non-aggressive manner to enable handling bigger, stronger, and faster opponents. We train with multiple attackers and with traditional, Japanese, practice weapons. Aikido emphasizes mind-body integration, balance, and flexibility, and teaches falling and receiving forces safely.

Because one of Aikido’s goals is self-defense without having to injure the attacker, police forces in Japan train in this martial art so that they can arrest and defend against perpetrators without damaging them. The dojo’s senseis are second- and third-generation practitioners of Aikido and benefit from a direct transmission of the art through Shizuo Imaizumi, Shihan, a direct student of the founder.
