Equinox - time to try something new

We're ready to welcome you. But why Aikido? After 40 years training - at various levels of commitment depending on life circumstances - is it about playing with my grandchild and not having to rest up for a day afterwards? Is it about understanding and dealing with aggression? Is it about choosing whether to feed the animal instinct or honour the human one? Is it about strategic awareness, not just seeing the small picture or the big picture but seeing both? Questions I am still asking but it's fun. It's worth the blood (very little but some bruises), sweat (quite a lot) and tears (not many, mostly tears of exhilaration).

Try a session or two or ten. If it's not for you, nothing ventured nothing gained.

Current fee per session is €8.
