Aikido is a relatively new martial art that was developed in the 1930s and - 40s by the Japanese Morihei Ueshiba. Its base are the budo arts as used by the Japanese samurai. In addition to working with bare hands we also practice with certain weapons. The principle of Aikido is to unite the opponents energy with one’s own and use it.


Jodo Shinto Musô Ryû is a separate martial art which consists of 60 katas. We defend ourselves with the jo (wooden stick). Practice is on Mondays and Thursdays, 16:45 - 18:15. In summer we have an additional practice in the Kannenfeldpark 19:00 -20:30.
