What is Aikido ?
Some people would say, its a martial art,
the one used by Steven Seagal
Others would say its a martial art that teaches
you to use an opponent's strength to defeat him / her
And still more would say, its a martial art
involving pins and throws
They're all true, but Aikido is mainly a
way to harmonize things, your mind, your spirit, your surroundings,
including your opponent or enemy in the street
Sounds strange? Don't worry, just learn aikido
a few years and you'll understand
Where can I learn Aikido ?
Look around your city, or ask around. Aikido
is a quiet martial art that is thriving everywhere nowadays, or
you can check sites in the links page for International Dojo Directory
How much will it cost ?
Each dojo has different fee, depending on
their location. Try watching the training session first before deciding
Where can I get bokkens, tanto, etc etc
Gee... If you're a beginner, don't bother.
It's not necessary
But If you're not, and you're having trouble
finding them, ask your sensei, or have a carpenter made one ( The
ones sold at stores are VERY Expensive )
Here in Indonesia you can get good quality
( yet cheap ) bokkens from Jepara
Where can I find Aikido Books ?
Hmm... I think most japanese bookstores has
them ( Kinokuuniya, Maruzen, etc, etc ) or you can buy them online
Still have questions?
