We have been practicing the Japanese martial art Aikido in Antigonish for over 30 years. Aikido is a martial art that resembles the fighting arts Jujitsu and Judo in its use of twisting and throwing techniques and in its aim of redirecting an attacker’s momentum against him or herself.
Aikido especially emphasizes the importance of achieving complete mental calm and control of one’s body to master an opponent’s attack. The development of courtesy and respect is another integral part of Aikido. Aikido is studied and enjoyed by men and women of all ages. We welcome beginners and experienced martial artists to come train with us every Tuesday and Thursday night at the Oland Center combat room.
