Aikido is a Japanese martial art, derived from ju-jitsu, that combines powerful joint locks, throws and pins to control an attacker while also avoiding injuries. It makes use of circular movements and proper timing to off balance an opponent and generate techniques. It is very effective at managing one or multiple attackers at the same time. Weapons practice is also an integral part of training. This makes it suitable for a variety of goals; from self-development through meditation to learning situational awareness in a self-defence context.
The RMIT Aikido Club has been running since the early 1980s to provide students and the general community with value-for-money martial arts training in a non-competitive and supportive environment. The club offers a range of classes to suit everyone, from beginners seeking to learn a new skill to advanced level looking to keep practicing.
Bring along comfortable clothing and a bottle of water to keep yourself hydrated during practice.
Beginners are welcome at anytime during the year!
