What can I learn from Aikido?
"A good stance and posture reflect a proper state of mind.”
The dojo is a gathering place to promote an environment of mutual understanding where individuals from all backgrounds may develop themselves. Training in Aikido improves flexibility, muscle tone, endurance and the stimulation and direction of Ki (universal energy). Moreover, through disciplined and focused study, Aikido students learn to become more centered in their lives, allowing a sense of calm to penetrate their actions and thoughts. There is no wrong time to begin Aikido.
"The purpose of training is to tighten up the slack, toughen the body, and polish the spirit."
There are no competitions in Aikido. Instead, a student's development is marked by their interaction with others and their ability to blend with an attack or deliver one, take a fall safely, and redirect an aggressor's energy. One needs an open spirit and a desire to work hard. Your skill level in another sport or activity will not necessarily help you with this unique martial practice.

From the moment you step in to the moment you step out, you are training. Proper etiquette is as much a part of your training as learning the techniques. Awareness is the most important thing. Be conscious, not only in your training on the mat, but also in the way you walk into and act within the dojo, the way in which you align your shoes, and the way in which you speak: all these are training in Budo as well. The etiquette at the dojo may seem confusing at times, but if you carefully observe and follow the examples of the instructor and the senior students, you will soon pick it up.
