Training


We practice Aikido in a dynamic, focused and respectful way, based on the underlying principles of Aikido. As there are no competitions in Aikido, it is not about winning or losing, but about improving and progressing in collaboration with each other.

After the warm-up, in which stretching, footwork, centering as well as safely rolling and falling are practiced, we learn the different aikido forms and techniques together with a partner by alternately performing the role of the attacker or the defender.

By working with contact and interaction, over time we adopt the physical and mental attitude that ultimately makes possible the joining of opposing movements and intentions. This process is further supported by regularly practicing using wooden swords and sticks in order to better understand distances, lines and axes of rotation and to work on the martial aspects of Aikido.
