Combative Aikido is a combination of modern and traditional martial arts. It is both mentally and physically stimulating to study, and lots of fun to learn. Combative Aikido also works well as a self defence system, using the negative force of an attacker and turning their energy into a positive force of defence. Dynamic locks, traps along with judo and jiu jitsu throws and take downs are just some of the Combative Aikido techniques that are employed alongside the explosive striking techniques of karate to form a powerful system of self defence that is designed to help you deal with the physical aggression found in today's modern world.
