Free Aikido Self-Defense Training

Free Aikido Class

Aikido is often translated as "the Way of unifying (with) life energy" or as "the Way of harmonious spirit."

SIGN UP   (Spots Limited! Hurry!)

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 strength, as the aikidōka (aikido practitioner) "leads" the attacker's momentum using entering and turning movements. The techniques are completed with various throws or joint locks.

You’ll learn the following:

  1. Ikkyo (elbow lock)
  2. Nikyo (wrist lock)
  3. Gokyo (elbow lock)
  4. Shihonage (a type of throw)
  5. Morote-Dori Kokyu-Ho (unbalancing an attacker)
  6. Tai No Henko (redirecting an attacker’s energy)
  7. Jo Dori – Defenses Against A Jo (Short Staff)
  8. How to use a Bokken (Sword) and a Jo (Stick)
  9. Tanto Dori – Defenses Against Weapons Attacks
  10. Ukemi – Aikido Falling Techniques
  11. Backward Roll or Ushiro Ukemi
  12. Forward Roll or Zenpo Ukemi

…and much more!

But don’t worry, I’ll get into the details of all of those further down, and step-by-step. At first glance, Aikido seems like a puzzle.

The course takes place on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays evenings from 5pm to 6:30 pm at our Plymouth location.
