Aikido, the way (do) of blending with (ai) energy or spirit (ki) is a powerful and compassionate Japanese martial art. By using throws and immobilizing holds, an Aikido student redirects and neutralizes the force of the opponent's attack. Aikido's circular movements do not rely on strength, making it practical for women, men, and children of all sizes and abilities. Its graceful and flowing techniques provide a unique alternative to martial arts that rely on offensive strikes and kicks. You can read more about Aikido at our dojo's website, Aikido of Champlain Valley.
