Martial Art Instruction in Bromley (Kent)
The Old Gym
Although there are now many varying styles of Aikido taught throughout the world, the basic principles remain the same. The force of any attack is controlled and diffused without injury to either instigator or defender. This is achieved by using avoidance and balance breaking followed, if necessary, by techniques including a range of locks and throws. It was our founder Professor TomikiÃ¢Â€Â™s belief that the sports arena could be a replacement for the battlefield in terms of keeping the Martial skills alive and effective, and that without practice against someone trying to resist the techniques, the core aikido skills would be lost.
Aikido is not very street practical, but can be nice to watch and practice as an art form, but not very practical for children & small adults, and letting your attacker attack first could be costly.
