                        KotegaeshiWhat is Aikido?

Aikido comprises a range of techniques for evading attacks and throwing or immobilising an attacker. We also work with Aikido weapons, the Jo and Bokken. The focus in our training is to maximise the power and effectiveness of the body. Overall, training in Aikido will help you achieve improved coordination, balance, flexibility, fitness, posture and physical resilience. Working with your body and working with your training partners in Aikido is also an incredibly enjoyable experience. Aikido training at Whitton is focused on developing and learning in a non-competitive and non-aggressive environment. During the early twentieth century, Morihei Ueshiba, usually referred to as O Sensei or Great Teacher, founded Aikido, a martial art largely inspired by his study of the older Japanese martial art of Daito Ryu Aiki Jujutsu.
