Why Try Aikido Weapons Training?
Because aikido is one of the most beautiful and enjoyable martial arts to practise. Weapon training helps us focus on correct posture through efficient and functional movement. In Aikido we are looking to develop a connected body, with the ability to extend our feeling and intention into the weapon.
