Aikido Demo at Bukit Jelutong 30th May 2009

This Saturday, Bukit Jelutong Residence Association is hosting a Carnival at the newly completed shop lots off the main trunk road called D'bayu. For residents, you may have noticed this empty building for some time now which overlooks the massive 3-4 football fields opposite the Bukit Jelutong Mosque. 

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. 

Domo Arigato.
