Training


Aikido group

 

Come and join our group of enthusiastic Aikido practitioners, ranging from beginners to masters in Aikido. Men and women train together, because in Aikido there are no competitions, and energy and finesse are more important than physical strength.

In the beginning, no special clothing is needed, just some comfortable sports clothes with long pants. Aikido training is barefooted, and slippers are handy for walking outside the mat (tatami).

Usually, an Aikido practitioner (aikidoka) wears a white martial arts suit (gi) with a belt (obi), which is white for a student (kyu) and black for a master (dan). Additionally, masters and advanced students wear black or blue pantskirts (hakama).

Martin Mühlenbrock is an experienced and internationally trained Aikido master with a third degree black belt (sandan) as well as a competent and officially certified Aikido teacher (niveau 3).

Mark Disco is an experienced Aikido master with a second degree black belt (nidan) as well as a competent and officially certified Aikido assistant teacher (niveau 2).
