Forest Grove Aikido
Aikido is a Japanese martial art defined in the 20th century by "O' Sensei", Morihei Ueshiba (1883-1969). “Aiki” means “blending body with mind to the movements of energy.” “Do” means “a way or path chosen towards self-realization.” Aikido is a system of self-defense employing techniques based upon circular motions that blend with the attack and energy of your opponent.

What we do
In aikido we train how to: move our bodies in a martial context; avoid strikes and kicks; take another person's balance; recover from losing our own balance; face multiple attackers; disarm a weapon attack; clear our own weapon for use against an opponent. We develop good core strength, balance, leg strength, and flexibility.
