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.
