is an Aikido group dedicated to training in traditional Aikido. We believe that the essence of Aikido is the forging of mind and body through training in the traditional martial techniques, refined and handed down to us by the founder of Aikido, Morihei Ueshiba (O'Sensei). He created a system of self defense that seeks to make its practitioners find harmony and a sense of discipline and peace through rigorous training.
We teach a Youth class, Ages 6-13
This training seeks not to injure the opponent but to subdue him. This is done with use of joint locking techniques and projections or "throws". It emphasizes circular movement and blending with the force coming toward the practitioner with an attitude of non-confrontation.

This special training makes Aikido more than just a martial art. It makes our practice and training in Aikido a vehicle by which we can develop our character along with that of our training partners.
