Aikido is often misrepresented and misunderstood. It's philosophy and principles involving "harmony" and re-direction of energy are important - but must be applied to the reality of life. It is first and foremost a MARTIAL ART which means there are strikes and kicks (Atemi waza) used in conjunction with throws and wrist locks. It is a supremely effective approach to develop mental, emotional and physical self-defense.

Aikido techniques are based on leverage and balance so size or strength don't matter. It's ideal for military, law enforcement training, and women's self defense.

Zanshin Aikido School is dedicated to provide the most accurate training and philosophy directly taken from O'Sensei's (the Founder of Aikido) top students and dojos.
