Jodo / Aikido

Aikido

Tomiki style Aikido is an ethical martial art that uses an attacker’s own force. Learn to use movement, posture and off-balance to keep safe while controlling an attack. Aikido is also an effective system of physical and psychological growth, developing confidence, composure and character. Enjoy health benefits such as relaxation, stamina and increased bone density. Anyone with a sincere attitude can do Aikido, regardless of size, strength or athletic ability. We practice in a safe, non-competitive atmosphere. Visitors are welcome, and your first class is always free.

Jodo (stick)

Shindo Muso Ryu Jodo is a classical Japanese martial art of using a stick to control and defeat an attacking swordsman. Originating in Kyushu, Japan, almost 400 years ago, this was used as a police weapon, and is still used by the Tokyo Metropolitan Police today. Training in Jodo teaches correct body structure, develops proper distance and timing, and builds spirit.
