Beginners aikido course

 
 
 

Want to start practicing martial arts but have no previous experience? Are you looking for an unconventional hobby, healthy movement, self-defense and a friendly team?

Sign up for a comprehensive Aikido course for beginners!

Aikido is not just a sport. It is a comprehensive system that develops a person mentally and physically and generally helps him to deal with the pitfalls of today’s world. In aikido you will find all-round movement, inner balance, self-defense and the transfer of what has been learned to everyday life situations. And all this in a group of friendly people without any pressure on performance or results.

Aikido is suitable for everyone, regardless of age, gender or physical condition. The goal of training is for you to be in better shape at the end than at the beginning.

HOW THE COURSE WORKS:

 
 
 
 
 
 
  • Course is suitable for everyone from 12 years old.
  • It doesn’t matter what the previous movement experience is – everyone develops at their own pace.
  • For a start, all you need is the desire to learn new things and comfortable sportswear (T-shirt and pants below the knees). We practice barefoot on the tatami mat.
  • Before payment, you have two free trainings to try.
  • The course is led by the club’s head teacher Tomáš Dubovský (2nd dan Aikikai).
  • Aikido is a non-competitive martial art, so you will find on the trainings a friendly atmosphere without rivalry and pressure for results.
  • Within the club, various teambuilding activities are organized – a Christmas party, end of the season party, tea rooms and trips.
  • After completing the basics, you can participate in up to 5 trainings per week without restrictions.

WHAT WILL YOU LEARN IN THE COURSE?

 
 
 
  • Versatile movement – aikido develops the whole body evenly. No  part is overloaded, so aikido is very suitable as a healthy movement for all ages.
  • Basic falls – the art of correctly accepting technique and falling not only without injury, but also naturally and comfortably.
  • Development of hara (center of the body) – aikido techniques are based on the center of the body, so its development is key. Modernly, this training is called “core”.
  • Breathing and health exercises – during the training you will get acquainted with techniques that will teach you how to breathe properly in movement, help you calm down and improve your concentration.
  • Basic self-defense – principles of conflict resolution, spatial orientation, timing and basic techniques.
  • Basics of working with weapons – during the training you will get acquainted with the basics of working with a Japanese wooden sword (bokken), stick (yo) and knife (tanto).

All your questions will be answered by experienced teachers. We care that all students know the meaning of what they do.
