My experience at Southland Aikido has been 100% positive. I started aikido only about four months ago expecting to learn some self-defense techniques, however, what I have happily stumbled upon is increased focus, mental clarity, confidence, physical fitness, camaraderie, AND the ability to defend myself. As a beginner, I have so much to learn and I look forward to training at Southland Aikido for a long time to come!
I have been taking classes at Southland Aikido for about 6 months now and I enjoy training Aikido here. Sensei breaks down every technique so that it is easy to see and to understand that his students like me can practice safely and properly. I feel very fortunate to be part of this warm and dedicated Aikido community.
