Yoshinkan Aikido is a modern martial art derived from the hand-to-hand combat techniques of the Samurai of ancient Japan. The training develops a strong and supple body that moves with confidence and grace. Yoshinkan Aikido uses the idea that a straight spine and relaxed body generates more power than a tense or misaligned body. By using correct body alignment and relaxation, a student (Aikidoka) can deal with, and generate, powerful forces with their body. Our system is designed to train and develop the body into a powerful coordinated unit.
