An Aikido class designed for beginners who are interested in learning this rich Japanese martial art.

Aikido is non-aggressive defensive martial art based on flowing movement and absorbing the energy of the attacker.

Classes begin with a gentle warmup and then learning to fall safely and roll, then moving into practicing some techniques together.

Everyone is welcome to join in.

To start you can wear a t-shirt and tracksuit bottoms if you don't have a keiko-gi (training-suit).

See you on the mats! :)

About Aikido Club

Our classes are on Tuesdays at 7pm in the handball court and Saturdays at 11:00am in the minor sports hall in DCU Sports Complex

We are dedicated to promoting the beautiful Japanese Martial Art of Aikido.

Aikido is a non-violent martial art which is nonetheless vigorous and physical in practise.

It has a philosophy of non-aggression and strives for an ideal of martial effectiveness while keeping your training partner safe.

The training includes methods of receiving the techniques in a way which keeps you safe, including rolling forwards and backwards.

It provides a good aerobic workout along with developing flexibility, balance and the core.

Aikido techniques are also fascinating and provide a great insight into how the body works.

We teach the traditional Aikikai style Aikido which is associated with the lineage from the founder Morihei Ueshiba also known as O-Sensei (Great Teacher).

Beginners are always welcome throughout the year, just come along to a class and join in.
