The word, AIKIDO, means "the path for harmonizing energies." It is a system for helping us tap into our highest potential as human beings by bringing together all of the conflicting pressures we might be facing, help us to be in harmony, so that we can fulfill our purpose in Life.
This may seem like a lofty goal, however many people feel transformed during an AIKIDO class. They find that they become more empowered in their daily lives. People also find that their personal and career lives begin to develop as well.
To some, AIKIDO appears like a martial art, however the basic movements that comprise this art lead toward harmony rather than destruction. It is a way to stop violence, whether physical, emotional or mental, and to restore peace. For most, this kind of development helps them to live more happy, healthy, and productive lives.
If you are looking to get more out of your life, and want to try a simple (and fun) method for tapping into your great reserves of potential, then come by and try one of these classes! You will be empowered and more effective in your daily life, have increased fitness levels, release stress and tension, learn a martial art of peace, AND have fun :)
Dress comfortably, and train at your own pace... and don't worry; there are typically several relatively seasoned practitioners who can help you to become better acclamated.
