Our Aikido demo will be conducted at 2.30pm at the main stage and will run for approximately 30minutes.
For those who have no idea what Aikido is...
Basically its a Japanese martial art, not unlike Jujitsu or Judo. It involves a lot of throwing and locks but encompasses some strikes and weapons training as well. The principle behind Aikido is harmony or balance. Practicioners are taught to blend with opponents attacks/energy and harmonise with it and bring them to a state of unbalance and control them from there on.
By the by, welcome to the site and its inaugural first posting. Later posts will contain some thoughts & reflections that I have on Aikido and martial arts in general as well as ideas on how we can keep ourselves and our loved ones safe.
