Aikido Beginners Class

Yoshokai Aikido

Aikido is a form of Japanese Budo, a way of study including both physical and mental training. The word Aikido can be loosely translated as “the Way (do) of harmony (ai) with nature or universal energy (ki).” Aikido is a way of studying harmony through physical movements. We study moving in harmony with others to eventually strive to create harmony with nature.
