Self-defence:

As a method of self-defence it is very effective. It uses throws, hold downs, arm locks and chokes as its main methods of subjugating an attacker. All Aiki-Judo’s movements rely on timing, balance and the correct application of force to be effective. Its techniques are often part of the curriculum for police agencies in Japan.

Health:

As a fitness program it encompasses all the aspects of a fitness regime and encourages a healthy lifestyle of its participants.

 

Sport:

Aiki-Judo is not a sport but a martial art. Because its physical elements are based on the sport of Judo there is a competitive element used to develop technique. Students learn how to effectively do techniques in a free-style manner.
