Understanding Aikido

Aikido is a Japanese martial art, designed purely for self-defense. Instead of engaging in fight or conflict, you learn to step out of the line of attack, using the energy and momentum of the attacker,to disturb his balance and to disable him without causing injury. Emphasis is on controlling your attacker by controlling yourself: your balance, attitude, and awareness.

If you would like to learn about Aikido and practice yourself, classes will run every Monday, 19.00 – 20.15 on campus. It is suitable for age 15 – adult. There is no cost. 

Please contact igorv@ptis.ac.th to express interest.
