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.
Our classes are on Tuesdays at 8pm and Saturdays at 12:30pm in the handball court of DCU Sports Complex
