The Way of the Union of Energies
Aikido is based on natural laws such as the circle and the spiral. This discipline, like other Japanese martial disciplines, offers the opportunity to become aware of one's own body and to develop notions of balance, dynamism, vigilance, mutual respect and mutual support.
Standing or kneeling, the aikido practitioner uses techniques of projections and immobilizations with one or more opponents, armed or not. The study of weapons, especially saber and stick (symbolizing a spear), contributes to the understanding of Aikido and allows a more complete progression. The falls (ukemi) are not, as in jûdô, the culmination of combat, but are understood as a form of recovery at the break of equilibrium. While avoiding injuries, the ukemi allow you to find yourself in an attack or defense position.
A workout consists of three phases: physical and mental preparation, technical work and, finally, a return to calm.

Latest news from the section
That's it ! The school resumes and with it the courses at the dojo! As all sections do not resume at the same time (some as of today and others as of September 4th), we invite you to contact the sections or the secretariat directly to find out when your section is back!
After the water damage at the Liotard Dojo, the city decided to close the dojo completely during the holiday period in order to replace the floor.
This does not mean the end of the training because most sections have introduced alternatives (including other training places) to continue the courses!
We invite you to contact your section representatives to find out what your section has set up and what will be the exact date of the re-entry.
If some of you would like to get business in their lockers before the start of the work and the complete closure of the dojo, we invite them to do so before the end of this week!
