Modern martial art for self defence

Where: Harrow & Wealdstone District Scout Centre, 1a Walton Road
Harrow, Middlesex HA1 4UX

Aikido is a relatively new Japanese Martial Art. With its roots in Ju-jitsu, has similarites with Judo without all the hip throws.

It's a defensive system so there's no emphasis on punching and kicking. Relies on being in the right place at the right time.

The aim is to evade an attack and position yourself to re-direct its energy into throws, joint locks and pins.

This makes it a great choice for everyone, regardless of size or gender, as you are not trying to match force with force.

Physical size and power for example are less important than being nimble.

Please note that the club does NOT run classes for children at present. The minimum age to enrol with us is 18
