The Southland Aikido community is a very friendly and supportive community. All of the instructors are very experienced and provide quality Aikido instruction. Aikido is more than a martial art, every time I practice at the dojo, I feel the way I used to when I practiced Karate. My mind is cleared, my body is becoming more flexible and have a positive outlook at life which is helping me in my business and personal matters.
Aikido training has been a life balancing force for me. It requires one to stay humble, work cooperatively with others, commitment to learning and staying in the present. My goal is to strive for victory over myself and enjoy the path!
