An essential part of all martial arts is the development of our core strength and flexibility.
Aikido “The Way of Harmony” is a very flowing style of martial art none the less it is important to learn how to roll and land properly.
Prevention is always better than cure and here at Ellerslie Aikido we aim to educate all our students in the art of rolling and falling properly as these are core principles of Aikido.
Throughout life we are going to be confronted with situations where we will instinctively need to make the choice between ‘Flight or Flight’ – with the skills that Aikido provides all our students will be able to make this decision wisely and confidently.
More often than not when confronted by an attacker , a bully or the like, demonstrating confidence and an ability to stay calm and in the most part fearless will in fact deter the attacker. If not the ability to defend ourselves utilising Aikido will go a long way to insuring our safety.
Todays society is very different to 10,20 years ago, respect has reduced and as a result we are witnessing a decline in our younger generation of self respect and respect for others. Here at Ellerslie Aikido we encourage and build self respect and the respect of others.
A strong sense of self respect and self belief provides us all with solid tools to move forward confidently in our lives.
