Do you see yourself sailing around the world in your dreams? Are you looking for a way to break a serious monotony in your day to day life?

Falls Road Aikido will teach you something powerful, fun, and they are friendly while doing it. Aikido emphasizes evasion, circular and spiral redirection of aggression. Instead of turning on Netflix to absorb the latest action thriller, learn to redirect that energy into yourself. You might be busy, or tired, or think, I’m not in the right shape to take up a martial art. The good thing about Aikido is that it is intensive, but the training is designed for everyone and making time for a good Aikido workout will give you more energy. You’ll also notice that the focus and positive changes you receive from training will seep into other aspects of your life. Instead of being bored wandering the Mt. Washington with your phone you’ll notice things you didn’t previously think to notice. You’ll be able to absorb more of your surroundings and appreciate them on multiple levels. Why? Because you will have begun to holistically empower yourself and to be open to the ebb and flow of action all around you.
Aikido is not about being better than those around you though, it’s about being open to relationships that the world is already placing before you. You’ll notice that you are more attentive to small changes in behavior, in movement, and in attitude. This will benefit you when you are bored or seeking direction. You’ll be more in tune with yourself and others. You’ll find smaller and grander ways to enjoy your world.

At the same time you’ll be getting fitter, stronger, and more capable physically. All around, it would be hard to pass up Aikido wouldn’t it?
