New students welcome in our kids and adult Aikido classes

Aikido is an exciting and dynamic martial art where the focus is on effectively blending with your partner's energy in a non-confrontational way. At Naka Ima, we work on developing the physical body through vigorous flowing practice, as well as on calming the inner self through breathing and continued focus on one’s center.

Benefits of the Aikido martial art practice

Aikido is a martial art that can be practised by kids and adults of all ages, and each class offers participants a full body workout that results in overall fitness. Immediate benefits include stress relief, increased flexibility, stamina and strength.
