Benefits of Aikido
Welcome to Aikido Academy
Aikido is a non-violent, non-competitive martial art which emphasizes techniques that use the antagonist's force to neutralize an attack. Aikido teaches self-discipline, respect, focus, confidence, and self-defense, but not only that, it's fun! Aikido is a great way to get some exercise after work or school and help you get the focus and confidence you need for success.
At Aikido Academy we have two complete programs; one for children, and one for adults. Click on one of the pictures below for more information about our programs.

Over the course of the camp, kids will learn how swords are used in the Japanese marital art Aikido. The classes will progress from basic sword strikes to more advanced katas (choreographed exercises), all in a positive, no-stress learning environment. Students will also have the opportunity to explore other aspects of Japanese culture through traditional arts and crafts such as haiku, origami, and Japanese calligraphy.
