What is Aikido?
Aikido is a modern martial art developed in Japan. Known as “the way of harmony”, aikido neutralizes an opponent’s attacks through joint locks and throws. Through sincere training, students of all ages and abilities find confidence in conflict resolution, improved fitness and flexibility, and an overall sense of well-being.
Who is Tacoma Aikikai?
Tacoma Aikikai offers community-centered aikido instruction, rooted in the lineage and discipline of Japanese martial traditions. Woman-owned and operated, Chief Instructor Ea Murphy has studied aikido since 2000 in both the US and Japan.
