Aikido develops coordination of mind and body. Through its philosophy and techniques, Aikido brings us into harmony with our environment, other people and ourselves.
Unlike many martial arts, Aikido requires no advantage in strength or speed, and is practised successfully by people of all ages and abilities.
Aikido practice develops flexibility, coordination, concentration, improved health and fitness, effective communication skills and self-esteem.
The purpose of Aikido is to foster the well-being and health of its students, of the community, and of mankind in general, through activities such as:
· making available and teaching the philosophy and practice of Aikido to its students and to interested members of the general public
· conducting and maintaining a program of activities for the advancement of Aikido and for the harmonious fellowship and welfare of its students.
