How to join

Beginners are welcome to start anytime

The central mystery of Aikido is that total calmness can be far more effective than meeting force with force. Many martial arts seek to block a strike and respond with an equivalent strike. Aikido seeks the opposite. The main idea is to stay calm and flow with the energy of the situation. Aikido training helps you find a calm centre and from this point to blend with an attack in order to bring it to a safe conclusion.

The founder of Aikido, Master Ueshiba, said that this form was “The Art of Peace”, with the whole idea being to return all situations to a state of harmony. Aikido is now used in conflict resolution work all over the world.

Come and try Aikido at the Byron Bay Sport and Cultural Center, Ewingsdale Road, Byron Bay.
