Upcoming overseas events

As far as we know, in September the IAF Summit will be held in Tokyo. We are waiting on an indication from the IAF or the Japanese Government if this event will be cancelled.

The Australasian Aikikai association is welcoming two senior instructors from the UK to run a seminar on 30-31 May, at Gosford NSW. Gordon Jones Shihan, 7th Dan and Eddie McCalla Sensei, 6th Dan will be leading the training. If any AKA student would like to attend please follow this link.

What is 
Aikido?


The Japanese martial art of Aikido is a comprehensive system of throwing, joint-locking and pinning techniques based on a philosophy of non-aggression.

It is not a sport.

HOW TO JOIN AIKIDO


Aikido has many physical and psychological benefits. The versatility of the art makes it ideal for students of all ages.

DOJOS 
    WITH 
      KIDS 
CLASSES

Aikido really does try to train without the over use of physical strength, which is the reason why males and females can work together equally.

When joining a martial school the student takes on a completely different attitude to exercise than if you were joining a gym.



AIKIDO MORAL CODE


Aikido is a Way

There is commitment and there is obligation
Do not abuse or misuse the art of Aikido
Study carefully, honestly and humbly
Respect your seniors 
Take care of your juniors 
                                   Seiichi Sugano 8th Dan
