Aikido Beginner's Classes Special: Huron Valley Aikikai.

  community member   < less

Interested in martial arts? Why wait to the New Year to start a resolution to a healthier you? In Japanese, Aikido means "the way of harmony with the force and principle of nature." Aikido is derived from Japan's traditional budo ("martial way"), but is more than just a set of techniques for fighting or self-defense. It is a path where the keen edge of martial art is used as a "Way" to personal growth. There are no competitions in Aikido, which follows its philosophy of harmony, and also preserves the original martial effectiveness of its techniques. Because winning and losing are never a concern, trainees are free to dedicate their efforts to the mutual goal of self-development, training and progressing at their own pace. Regular practice produes not only improved fitness, but a sense of well-being and self-confidence that extends to daily life.
Huron Valley Aikikai, 1904 Federal Blvd. Ann Arbor 48103. $10/per class. 734-761-6012. hvaikikai@gmail.com http://www.hv-aikido.com/ [map]
