Aikido students train with their expert Japanese guests

 Today we have been teaching about balance and how to break it.  I think practising Aikido is very beneficial - it provides you with a life philosophy and is good for your health.  Asked what he thought about Thanet, Mr Shishida said: "I think this is a beautiful town, I am really enjoying my time here.  I went down to the sea-front lunch today and it was very nice. Tonight we we going to have fish and chips.  "Instructor Dick Todd said: "It is really good for the club and a lot of people have come for the seminar. We have got people here from Latvia, Belgium and Russia. "This year we have had 16 members take part in the world championships."
AIKIDO is a Japanese martial art developed by Morihei Ueshiba as a blend of martial arts, philosophy and religious beliefs.  Aikido can be translated as "the my of harmonious spirit".  The goal is for practitioners to defend themselves while also protecting their attacker from injury.
