New Aikido classes on Tuesdays and Fridays

Leave a comment

Our Tenants Hall is now hosting a new group training the Japanese martial art of Aikido, on Tuesdays (7 – 8:30 p.m.) and Fridays (7:30-9:30 p.m.).

Aikido is an inherently non-aggressive  Japanese martial art based primarily on unbalancing an attacker through the use and re-direction of his own momentum, and through the application of throws and joint locks. As it requires very little force, it can be practiced with very little physical strength and by people of all ages. It is self-defense (and self-improvement) oriented and non-competitive.

The instructor is Nikos, who has been training and practicing aikido for the past 13 years, including 3 years spent at the Shiseikan Dojo in Tokyo, attaining the grade of 3rd dan.

Classes are for 18yo+ and open to both men and women. For further information please contact Nikos directly at ngeikis@gmail.com    or 07475825852. The group will take a break from training in August, and resume in September.
