Aikido BaysideTraining in the traditional takemusu methods employed by the founder of Aikido
Aikido Bayside training integrates several martial systems, including empty-hand (tai-jutsu), wooden sword (aiki-ken), wooden staff (aiki-jo) and knife (tanto).
Instead of clashing with an attacker’s physical strength, the self-defence techniques of Aikido blend with the attacker’s movements using the dynamic engagement strategies and spherical motion evolved from techniques of Japanese Swordsmanship, thus enabling both men and women to effectively defend themselves against multiple armed or unarmed attackers without the need to employ the destructive punching and kicking techniques that can often be associated with other combat arts.

- Aikido is one of the most popular martial arts practiced worldwide. What differentiates Aikido from other traditional martial arts is that it’s empty-hand techniques are derived from the body movements, martial strategy and mental focus of Japanese swordsmanship.
- Aikido’s free flowing circular movements enable you to redirect the energy from an opponent without having to clash with the force of the attack. This non-aggressive strategy allows you to effectively defend yourself without the need to employ the destructive punching and kicking techniques that characterise other combat arts.
- The training takes place in a safe, friendly, non-competitive group environment, at a pace that is tailored to your ability. This ensures an injury-free training session that is most suitable for men, women and children of all ages.
- The training promotes a healthy lifestyle and teaches discipline, etiquette and respect for all life.
- We are strongly committed to maintaining the authentic, traditional ideals of the unique martial-art of Aikido as originally taught by Morihei Ueshiba (1883-1969).
