Intro to Aikido 4-Week Series
6:00pm / DSBK Dojo
Aikido? Ai means harmony. Ki means energy. Do is the way. Thus, ai-ki-do is the way we harmonize energy. Aikido is a Japanese martial art with a do-no-harm approach to self-defense. A 2017 compilation of academic research on aikido found that people derive many physical and psychological benefits from this martial art. Better balance, more flexibility, boosted confidence, greater mindfulness, and reduced anxiety are some of the reported findings. Would you like to welcome these qualities into your life?    Register the 4-week Intro Series. Visit our website for full details.
