The founder of Aikido, Sensei Morihei Ueshiba, was born in Japan on December 14, 1883.

As a young boy he started training hard and achieved high degrees of styles as jujitsu, fencing and spear. Despite his impressive track record, he felt little satisfied with this. Throughout his long life he developed what we know today as Aikido, a Martial Art that guides us to find inner balance, strengthen & learn control of our body & to increase our chi/ki.

Once a solid fundamental understanding & technical capability has been acquired, Aikido gives the confidence & ability for self-defence.

Classes for children (under 13yrs) are held at Prestfoss barneskolen on Thursdays at 17.30 – 18.30, followed by classes for adults (13yrs & above) starting at 19.00 – 20.30.
No previous experience is necessary.

Advanced classes are held at Evje Gård on Mondays 19.00 – 20.30 with instructor Anders Næss.
