Aikido is a martial art that harmoniously combines body and mind elements, it is more than just one of many combat systems. Aikido tactics are to dodge, cover, lever, throw, etc.
The precision of the movements means that a well-trained aikidoka can even cope with several opponents at the same time.
Everyone can practice Aikido, because there is no age barrier here. Everyone trains at a level appropriate to their own abilities and needs.
There is a friendly atmosphere during trainings, which eliminates unnecessary stress. During the classes, we learn to cooperate and respect ourselves and other exercisers, because there is no aggression or struggle, and we improve our techniques by working together. We all share the acquired knowledge with each other, thanks to which we gain a lot.
Children are divided into two groups - beginner and advanced. Classes for children are of general development character, their purpose is to improve physical fitness and learn the basic principles of aikido, such as labels, pads, and some techniques. During training, children DO NOT use levers or strong throws that could pose a threat to them. However, already in the advanced group, children begin to learn the basics of self-defense.
