Free Adult Aikido Taster Session - 7th March 2019

Not all martial arts are the same; they all come with different personalities and styles. Aikido is unique because, at its core, it teaches you two things: first, to move to avoid incoming attacks, and second, to blend with them (harnessing the energy of the attack and redirecting it into a throw or restraining move).

This makes Aikido suitable for all ages.

Taster Sessions we are offering the opportunity to sample for free two classes of Aikido during September.
