Aikido is a Japanese martial art which utilizes the principles of leverage and balance manipulation in order to defeat larger more stronger opponents. If one were to meet force with direct force, the stronger person will always win. As almost all assaults are targeted against perceived 'weak' victims, dealing with an attacker head-on is not always the best strategy. By using non-direct force applied in circular movements and not "meeting force with force" are you better able to control violent situations and protect yourself and your loved ones. We don't rely solely on punches and kicks, rather we emphasize advantageous positioning, joint manipulation and locks/holds. As a result, anyone, regardless of size or strength, can learn the art of Aikido and apply its techniques effectively.

Close to Footscray train station, we are located at Footscray City Primary School in the blue stone building near the corner of Hyde St and Bristow St. Costs are $4 per class for students/unemployed and $7 per class for working adults.
