The OCBC Aikido Club welcomes members and nonmembers, men and women, to practice aikido, an effective and nonviolent art of self defense. Aikido emphasizes the unification of mind and body and harmonious blending with the opponent or attacker in all of its techniques. Important principles are posture, breathing, the right distribution of tension and relaxation, and extending ki. Aikido training not only instills discipline and develops calmness and confidence but is good exercise and very enjoyable.
Aikido practice is held on Monday and Wednesday from 7 to 9 pm. in the Social Hall. The instructor is Dan Kawakami, 6th Dan.. Interested parties, with or without experience, need only show up at the times notes with their gi or loose clothing.
