Aikido Club

Aikido Club

Aikido is a Japanese martial art focusing on controlling an attacker through joint locks, ground pins and body throws.


Who we are

Aikido is a Japanese martial art derived from jujitsu. It combines the body's biomechanics and joint locks to control an attacker. It makes use of circular movements and proper timing to off-balance, and apply techniques on an opponent. Training also develops situational awareness to manage multiple attackers effectively.

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 practitioners looking to take up a second martial art.

Bring comfortable clothing and a bottle of water to keep yourself hydrated during practice.

Beginners are welcome at anytime during the year!
