Partner Contact

Aikido is a traditional Japanese martial art created by Morihei Ueshiba. Its principle is to merge with the attacker’s movements in order to redirect them instead of it ‘colliding’ with them. The main focus of the practice is on self-development rather than on attaining perfection of movement. 

During the work, daily aikido practice will be presented. Miyamoto sensei will introduce the concepts of physical, dynamic and ‘live’ contact with the partner. He will also address the question of the changing perception of the different aikido forms.
