Martial Arts

Beginning Aikido
Aikido is a defensive martial art that teaches methods for controlling attacks without violence. Unlike other martial arts that emphasize retaliation, aikido teaches techniques for redirecting aggression. Aikido teaches natural fluid motion and helps you learn to remain calm under stress. Ultimately, the relaxation of aikido positively affects all aspects of one's life. Class location will be Village School, 2855 Lincoln St room 8 in the upper wing.
