Aikido, which translates to- 'Way of harmony' -is a Japanese martial of non-violence. A aikido practitioner learns to move and blend with aggression and stress. Not standing in one place one avoids getting hit. Sensei Rubio focuses on body conditioning, posture and alignment, extending and projecting energy and presence, and learning how to fall and recover. The student develops self-control, discipline and respectful behavior.
