Aikido Is For Everyone

Aikido is not just for the young, the tough, and the fit. I'm proof enough of that. I'm 54, mildly overweight, and prone to all sorts of small, but nagging injuries. But beyond myself, at camp there were all sorts of people, in all different shapes and sizes. Aikido is a way, we each have our own unique response to it.

What makes Aikido a effective form of self defense is that it does not rely solely on the strength and agility of the practitioner. Aikido is a martial art that adapts to one's physical condition which is why a top quality athlete or someone with a physical limitation can become an effective practitioner of Aikido.
