What is Aikido?

Aikido is a Non-Agressive Form of Self Defense for Defending yourself with dignity and grace, that receives an attack and redirects the energy and either pins the attacker or throws him or merely deflects away. This exceeds the philosophy of many martial arts through the ethical application of techniques without reciprocating with animosity and emotion.

                     You can actually respond with a loving, protecting spirit.

Many martial arts philosophies talk about peace, but when physical action becomes necessary the normal option is violent counterattack. Aikido offers thousands of options that vary from mere deflection to take downs or throws with no damage done, or to take downs that immediately end any further attack from that person. Sometimes, for the protection of the greater society, it becomes reasonable to stop a person from promoting intentions harmful to others.

The location for practices is:
Southwest Gainesville Industrial Park
4424 SW 35th Terrace.
