Aikido is the only effective method of self defense that does not use violent action in response to violent confrontation. Aikido will help develop within your self the power of compassionate, cooperative and peaceful methods in de-escalating and resolving conflict.
Iaido is being in the moment while drawing and cutting with a Japanese sword. Iaido is a challenging individual practice of mindfulness and precise bodily movements.
