Aikido is not just a martial art. We believe that anyone can develop their own self-mastery through practice, and we see proof of this every day.
We learn from whatever we practice.
Stressing out, procrastination, and self-doubt might seem involuntary, but it's something we learn to do. Assertiveness, mindfulness, and clear, decisive action can also be learned, when your experience supports these skills.
The more you practice, the more you become the person who stays clear-headed in stressful times. The one who takes action to solve a problem and de-escalate a situation. Someone who joyfully steps past the edge of your comfort zone, and finds that your comfort zone can grow.
