Aikido is an effective martial art that can be used in
many different situations. From subduing an attacker without harming them
to defending yourself from multiple attackers at once. Aikido is also a
martial art that can be practiced at speed into the later years of life
and is a martial art that men, women and children can enjoy. We encourage
you to come and watch a class. Aikido is not competitive and therefore may
appeal to you for this reason. Each student is given the room to progress
at his or her own pace. You will find our instructors and students very
friendly and helpful.
The teachers are second to none! They do more than
teach skills - they educate students in the tradition and discipline
associated with Aikido. Osamu
Obata Sensei 7th Dan, Chief Instructor for the JCCC Aikikai, has been
teaching at the JCCC Aikikai for over 30 years.
Although on the mats we strictly adhere to protocol,
off the mats, it is very easy to develop a familiarity and sociability
here at the JCCC Aikikai. We often gather outside of our regular classes and many students have made new
friends within. For more information about joining our club, please read here.
