Aikido is known for:
- the enhancement of suppleness and wellbeing;
- developing your Centre and the co-ordination of mind and body;
- taking control of the mind and to promote health;
- calms your mind particularly and enables you to resolve problems effectively.
This powerful art leads the force of an attack and returns it back to the attacker. The more a person attacks, the more they may see the futility of their actions. Its exercises develop the skills of the martial art and are used in work with partners and in groups. Calmness in action, extending positive will power and centring yourself in the midst of a dynamic attack are learned through the practice.
