Aikido is the creation of a martial arts genius, Morihei Ueshiba, respectfully known as O’Sensei (teacher of teachers). Aikido teaches effective martial arts techniques rooted in a philosophy of non-violence. Techniques are designed to neutralize aggressive energy without harming the attacker(s). This class emphasizes ukemi: the art of blending with the energy of any attacker(s). Included in the study of ukemi is a thorough review of rolling and tumbling. Students should wear sweat pants and a sweat top. Scholarships are available for anyone in financial need.
