Aikido

Aikido has been called a “gentle” martial art because it uses strictly defensive techniques of evasion, redirection, and immobilization to avoid and control the attacker. Aikido focuses on minimum effort/maximum effect, which makes it well suited for all people regardless of age, size, or gender. This class is a wonderful way to learn some basic, effective self-defense.
