Longmont Branch

Aikido is a non-violent Japanese budo, or "martial way".  The basic philosophy of Aikido is to neutralize conflict through non-aggressive means before it occurs, and to help build a more peaceful world.  this is achieved by harmonizing with the energy of your partner, redirecting and controlling it without injury through training mind, body and spirit to create an integrated whole.  Aikido training is non-competitive and fosters a cooperative, supportive attitude of positive resolution.  The benefits of Aikido practice are intended to extend beyond the dojo into all aspects of the practitioner's daily life.
