Sunday, 3:00pm – 3:30pm, Demo Area

Aikido is a modern Japanese martial art based upon the prin- ciple of harmony through connection, balance, and timing. It is an extremely powerful form of self defence that is also gentle and non-aggressive: carefully controlling an attacker using the attacker’s own energy. Strength is not emphasized because the use of physical strength is unnecessary. Shioda Aikido is the Aikido of Gozo Shioda; Morihei Ueshiba’s most outstanding student, and preserves the hard style, pre-war teachings of O’Sensei.


合気道は、連結、バランス、そしてタイミングを利用した和合の原 理に基づいて高度に発展した日本の武術です。護身術として非常 に強力でありながら、優しく、攻撃的なものではありません。攻撃 者のエネルギーを利用して相手をコントロールするため、肉体的 な力は必要がありません。篠田合気道は、植芝盛平大先生の戦前 からの教えを忠実に守る篠田剛造式の合気道です。
