About Monadnock Aikikai
Aikido has been called, “The Way of Peace”. Its practice involves precise movement, falls, throws, locks and dynamic “blending” techniques that seek to neutralize the “attack” using a minimum of force. Great size or strength is not needed to effectively control the oncoming force. Aikido is a powerful martial art. Yet the philosophy behind Aikido emphasizes non-violence and conflict resolution. We have five classes each week for adults of any age, and kid’s classes on Saturdays.
