Atlantic Aikido, Galway

Aikido is a dynamic Japanese martial art focused on self-defence and self-development. Its techniques involve throwing or restraining an attacker using co-ordinated body movement. Aikido training develops body awareness, fitness and flexibility, timing and sensitivity, and physical and mental resilience. On a deeper level, the art is an exploration of personal interaction, the psychology of conflict, and traditional Japanese culture.

As we are currently on Level 3 on the government’s Framework for Restrictive Measures, we cannot conduct indoor group training.

Unfortunately, the club will not be in a position to admit new members until such time as we return to Level 2, when we hope to access our training facility again.

If you would like to receive an update when the next beginners’ course is scheduled, please supply your details here.
