Benefits of Aikido

January 21, 2019

There is much more to aikido than learning combat techniques. Aikido is a path to self-development. This development integrates your body, mind and spirit, to make you a more well-rounded person.

Put simply, aikido training is designed to develop your physical strength, resilience, wisdom and energy, to leave a positive impact on the world. The physical, mental, emotional and spiritual benefits of aikido can last a lifetime, these include:

Develop martial skills

The key focus of aikido is learning non-violent self-defence techniques. Through rigorous training, you learn how to move with, rather than against, any potential attackers. The combat techniques you learn put your attacker(s) off balance, giving you total control over the situation.

Physical benefits

When you start practicing aikido, you will notice rapid physical improvements. These benefits include: improved balance, coordination, a swifter reaction time and a greater sense of timing. Aikido training also improves your posture, aerobic conditioning and flexibility. You’ll also develop a greater awareness of your body, leading to a more relaxed, confident presence.

Mental benefits

Regular aikido training will dramatically increase your self-awareness and help you feel much more relaxed. You’ll also be able to resolve conflicts more effectively, and cope with stressful situations in a much calmer, more level-headed manner. Above all, the strict self-discipline that aikido requires will foster a greater sense of self-confidence in your abilities and in yourself.

Spiritual benefits

Aikido will also work wonders for your spiritual health. The practice will drastically improve your quality of life. Through aikido’s rigorous self-discipline, you’ll gain the power and confidence to break bad habits and replace them with good ones.

Mastering the peaceful combat techniques will also give greater clarity and perceptiveness, and a better intuitive understanding of yourself and the world around you.

A sense of community

The beauty of studying aikido is it brings people from all cultures, countries and walks of life together. Training in an environment of mutual trust and respect, you’ll meet like-minded people who are interested in improving their relationships with themselves and others.
