Learn more about Aikido

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. It’s 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. 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.

We welcome you to look through our site, and call us or email us if you have specific questions. You can read our Aikido FAQ page or some of the martial arts articles written by Naka Ima members and instructors. You can also stop by the martial arts dojo in Toronto to watch or join us for a free trial class.
