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.
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!
