Aikido of Northern Utah
The Japanese martial art of Aikido is a peaceful discipline of self-defense and personal development. Training includes stretching, instruction in safe rolling and falling, joint-lock and throwing techniques, wooden sword and staff techniques, as well as breathing and meditation exercises.

Aikido is suitable for men, women and children of all ages, as the techniques do not rely on strength, but rather on the ability to use an attacker’s balance and energy to create a defense. Families are welcome to train together!
