About the Aikido Club

The Aikido Club works closely with the NIH Tae Kwon Do Club providing students the opportunity to learn either or both arts.

Wednesday nights are focused on using Aikido principles for self-defense.

Saturdays are focused on traditional Aikido training including using the bokken (sword) and the jo (staff) and empty hand techniques.

Students at all skill levels as well as other arts practicing at NIH are welcomed to attend.
