Aikido Center Sacramento offers comprehensive Aikido training in a supportive, non-competitive, and non-violent environment. We provide quality instruction in a traditional setting (dojo) for young people and adults who wish to cultivate their body, mind and spirit through the art of Aikido.
Aikido Training at a basic level focuses on the study of physical techniques to resolve conflict effectively without aggression or violence.
In practice, students learn how to effectively anticipate, enter, and lead the attack to peaceful resolution. Although Aikido techniques can be utilized as a dynamic method of personal protection, this aim is considered a by-product of sincere long-term practice and not its primary purpose.
As a student advances in training, the Aikido movements and forms become vehicles to cultivate a deeper connection with our selves, our partners, nature, and ultimately to unify with the universe. At this advanced level of training, Aikido`s Founder referred to the practice as “kami waza”, or training in Divine Forms.
