Aikido Club

Aikido Club

Aikido is a Japanese martial art focused on controlling an attacker using powerful joint locks, ground pins and body throws. It is derived from Japanese jujitsu, with an emphasis on controlling an opponent through their joints.


Aikido is a Japanese martial art, derived from ju-jitsu, that combines the body's natural biomechanics and joint locks, throws and pins to control an attacker. It makes use of circular movements and proper timing to off-balance, control, 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 along comfortable clothing and a bottle of water to keep yourself hydrated during practice.

Beginners are welcome at anytime during the year!
