Understand the spirit of Japanese martial arts, Aikido, and learn how to protect yourself.

Understand the spirit of Japanese martial arts, Aikido, and learn how to protect yourself.

, where the spiritual aspect is important, It is a martial art that nurtures the spirit of nature, human reason, social justice, and values the spirit of peace and harmony. This martial art is not intended to defeat the enemy. Instead of competing with the opponent by power, it is not a skill of leaving power, but rather a technique that uses the opponent's power reasonably. The quick and reflexive movement that avoids personal dangers will bounce off the thugs that suddenly attack you, and it will also exert its power for self-protection. Learn the Aikido self-defense technique that can be recommended as a self-defense technique for weak women, and experience a wonderful experience that teaches your spirit and skills to your friends. Why don't you drop your mind, feel confident in your power and feel calm?
