Aikido is a traditional Japanese martial art, a way of self-defence and self-development. The techniques of Aikido originate from the throws, joint locks, sword and staff techniques of the samurai warrior. Modern Aikido uses the strength, momentum and aggression of the attacker rather than relying on being stronger, fitter or faster oneself. Aikido maximises the effectiveness and efficiency of the practitioner's own body and movement, developing a deep understanding of how the body works and how this power can be used most successfully. Regular training in Aikido also helps practitioners to become more centred and grounded and thereby better able to deal with the stresses of daily life.

Try Aikido at Reading YMCA - free taster session.

Quote from a White Oak Aikido student: "Practice is offered within a very positive and encouraging environment."
