About Aikido and the Monash Club
Aikido is an effective martial art whose essence goes beyond the resolution of physical conflicts. Aikido uses circular flowing movements originating from a relaxed body and a fully focused mind. Regular practice brings a feeling of well-being and self-confidence that carries over into every aspect of daily life.
Aikido uses repeated practice of various techniques in its physical training. The trainee practises ways to control aggression without causing harm or injury.
The Monash Club
Classes at Monash are aimed at beginners at the start of the year, but we welcome new students at any time of the year. As students progress the classes become more advanced. During your first few lessons you will be taught basic concepts involving posture, controlling energy flow (rolling and attacking) and interacting with other students. For safety reasons, you must watch an Aikido class before participating.
