ABOUT OUR DOJO
Health. FAMILY. Fitness. Fun.
Aikido is a traditional Japanese martial art developed by Morihei Ueshiba in the early 20th century practiced here in Clearwater, Florida. Respectfully given the name O'Sensei, or Great Teacher, by his students, Aikido is a physical practice of philosophical principles striving for the ultimate goal of peaceful resolution, rather than defeat.
Proper etiquette, attitude, and behavior are the cornerstones and hallmarks of most martial arts, and Aikido is no exception.
Aikidoka train in Clearwater and Tampa Bay, Florida to harmonize with, rather than confront an aggressive line of force, converting it into a circular motion that renders attackers helpless. Aikidoka learn to apply thousands of variations of wrist locks, arm pins, and unbalancing throws to subdue and neutralize attackers without serious injury. These practices are coupled with learning the Aikido art of falling, or "ukemi", which trains the body and mind to receive such techniques in a safe manner.
