Aikido: Martial Arts Training
White Oak Aikido, Reading
Run by: White Oak Aikido
Aikido is a non-competitive martial art, teaching the efficient use of the body to maximise its power with fitness, suppleness, good posture and co-ordination all being developed through training.
- ADD TO CALENDAR
Your taster session will start with a formal bow, followed by gentle warm up exercises and a series of basic movements, which improve posture and co-ordination, and teach you how to receive techniques safely.
The main part of your session will involve practising a series of basic Aikido techniques with an experienced student. The techniques are broken down into easily learned components to make them quicker to pick up and easier to understand; the instructors are always on hand to offer assistance and answer any questions.
