Aikido of Greensboro

Aikido is a highly effective form of self-defense that teaches how to subdue even a much larger aggressor using minimum effort. Aikido, a true budo or martial way, evolved in the historic tradition of Japanese warrior arts. When studied in earnest, budo is not only a science of tactics and self-defense; it is a discipline for perfecting the spirit. The final aim of budo is the achievement of personal excellence, the development of a polished, balanced, and sensitive human character.

Aikido practice is conducted in an energized, non-competitive environment. Aikido practitioners believe that martial and personal development is best achieved by practicing cooperatively, with partners helping each other learn techniques. Practice improves physical conditioning - strength, balance flexibility, and coordination - and mental conditioning - self-confidence, concentration, alertness, intuitiveness and concern for others.

Aikido teaches how to blend with an attack, and neutralize it without relying on brute strength. Consequently, Aikido is appropriate for men and women of all ages.
