White Oak Aikido Reading
Last updated: 02/05/2023
The White Oak Aikido Reading beginner’s course has been designed to offer you a structured introduction to this exciting martial art. Our team of highly skilled and qualified Aikido coaches will ensure that your training will be to the highest standard. Training is open to anyone over the age of 18 and we have no upper age limit.
Aikido is a traditional Japanese martial art, a way of self-defence and self-development. The techniques of Aikido originate from the throws, joint locks, sword and staff techniques of the samurai warrior. Modern Aikido uses the strength, momentum and aggression of the attacker rather than relying on being stronger, fitter or faster oneself. Aikido maximises the effectiveness and efficiency of the practitioner’s own body and movement, developing a deep understanding of how the body works and how this power can be used most successfully. Regular training in Aikido also helps practitioners to become more centred and grounded and thereby better able to deal with the stresses of daily life.
Just get in touch to book your free taster session or for more information. Find out more about starting Aikido in Reading. We also offer martial arts in Knighton at our Whitton Aikido dojo and Qigong in Craven Arms.
