Aikido is a modern, non-violent Japanese martial art that was developed early in the 20th century by the late master Morihei Ueshiba. Aikido is effective as a martial art but its essence goes beyond the resolution of physical conflict. In accordance with the founder’s ideals, the art has kept separate from sports. Aikido is rather a path for personal development for people who sincerely desire to perfect their own human nature.

Membership fee (annual): $95 for USQ student members ($238 for non USQ student members)

Training: Tuesday and Thursday 6.30-8.00pm.
Training cost: $5 for USQ student members ($10 for non USQ student members)

Aiki Jutsu is a traditional Japanese martial art of the samurai from the Aizu clan of today’s Aizuwakamatsu, Fukushima, Japan. It focuses not only on the physical aspects of combat training (i.e. open hands and weapons) to effectively deal with different situations and individuals, it also places emphasis on developing one's mind and martial values/ethics. This is a traditional martial way (Budo) for effective self-defence and earnest self-cultivation that enables us to better manage our health, conflict and stress in life. In addition to skill-based training (open hands & weapons), students are taught meditation and other training to improve mental focus and clarity.
