Yurusu Aikido

Official Organization of Aikido In The Nishio Tradition.

Aikido is for everybody!

Adults

As an adult, it is no longer always easy to start a new thing. It is driven by curiosity, the desire for knowledge, but there is a lot of doubt, the inhibitions raised in you, the failures you have experienced before. What if I get awkward? How am I going to learn this? I'm too old for it, should I have started 20 years ago? What if I get hurt? Is it accepted by the community?

We have good news! Almost everyone has these questions in their minds before deciding to try Aikido! The only difference is that someone will turn back here because they succumb to the negative programs clicking in their head, and someone will take it upon themselves and take the first step!

No matter how old you are, what your physical condition is, there is no age limit in Aikido! You can have countless goals that this martial art, a form of movement, can help you with. Do you want to feel better? Want to spend a few hours a week in a support community? Do you want to find your balance, break out of the treadmill of everyday life? Take the first step yourself!

Children class

Wondering if Aikido would be the right form of movement for your child? We help couple with thought to make it easier to decide.

In most sports, it is inevitable that your child will be in a competitive position, so school stress can be put on by even a shovel in the expectation of the sport. If you’re more looking now with the idea that your child is happy to do a movement where there is no comparison with others, no races, and too much pressure, then you’re in the right place! What Aikido can give your child is a supportive community where it can develop unnoticed.

The aim of our trainings is to improve posture, develop movement coordination, develop a willingness to cooperate, with tasks that require attention and focus, in a friendly, good community, in small groups, without injuries.

We welcome all primary school children to our children's aikido trainings. The structure of the workouts and the examination system, which is also considered important for children, are designed to cover this relatively wide period of childhood well and to provide a challenge for all ages.

For most sports clubs, only the first time is free. For us, our experience is that children need to dissolve more than once, make first friendships, and the initial touch, perhaps fright, disappear. For this reason, we provide a full monthly aikido training opportunity free of charge. This way you can decide without obligation and with certainty whether you want to join the workouts.

All our aikido trainings are open, so you can join, watch and try our training at any time. If you have any questions, please contact me with confidence:

I do/have practiced other martial arts

Did you think that half of our members didn't start practicing martial arts with aikido? Apparently not it is rare for many to come to us later, after practicing several bends, detours, and multiple styles. Why could it be In your twenties, early thirties, you might still feel like you can do almost anything. Flexible or, your fitness is snapping, your injuries will regenerate quickly. As time goes on, all of a sudden you are painfully confronted with the fact that your body is becoming more and more vulnerable and is facing obstacles that have so far you didn't even notice. Is there still progress from here, and if so, in what way?

You may also have had the good fortune to learn some martial arts as a child or as a young adult, but then you stopped, life drifted in a different direction. However, deep in your soul, the tatami, the gym, even the white training suit is hidden deep in your wardrobe, you didn't have a heart to throw out…

If these thoughts have turned in your head as well, you are in the right place. We wrote this blog just for you.

The human body has physical endowments of head, limbs, joints, sensitive points, and surfaces that are exploited and attacked by various martial arts. For this reason, the same techniques can be found in most martial arts with minor major differences. Aikido can also be thought of as a sophisticated method for our other martial arts. This method can be applied to a greater or lesser extent depending on the nature of the particular martial art, for example, goju-ryu karate is characterized by an alternation of hardness and softness, it fits well with aikido, but there is a karate style, “Strength Karate”, with which fewer common point can be found. In aikido, technical knowledge is very important, less strength, the structure of trainings also follows and strengthens this principle.

Our way to AIKIDO

Utunk az aikido-hoz kép

In our trainings you can practice the improved AIKIDO techniques created by the master Shoji Nishio, based on the ideas of the use of weapons (sword, stick). The techniques are not aimed at destroying the partner, but at keeping him under constant control, giving you the opportunity to end the attack without injury and stay alive. Master Nishio's vision and his published book Yurusu Budo - Forgiving Martial Arts. The techniques he created are all based on this idea, while keeping in mind the the real combat value of the techniques.

The main aim of aikido is to train the body and mind, but spending two and a half hours a week in a dojo is not enough. The age in which we live is not allow us to spend all our time practicing and living the dojo, but there is the possibility for continuous improvement.

Be your own master, your home is the Zen monastery!

Of course you need a guide to follow and accept his ideas, you need to practice together, but 3 hours a week is is not enough. Therefore, an integral part of our training is the practice of other forms of movement, martial arts, especially those that are can be done alone. Toho Iai, practicing nunchaku, chi kung. The many possibilities make the training very varied and complex at the same time and gives everyone the opportunity to do it at their own pace and schedule.

AIKIDO day & CHI KUNG

Place: Budapest, 13.district Váci str. 19.

Date: 26 November 2022 Saturday

Aikido: from 10:00, bring your own weapons!

Chi kung: from 14:30

About AIKIKDO training: 5 hours of training seems daunting and a bit long at first glance. The lack of a long break adds to the excitement. There is a 5 minute break every hour, but if you get thirsty or need to rest, you can do so at any time. There have been occasions when we have done the 5 hour workout with a single 10 minute break. Consider this a "workshop exercise", a joint experimentation, where the goal is not to rush, but rather to analyze and understand the techniques you've chosen.
All interested are welcome!

About the CHI KUNG practice: it will be the first and unconventional session where several groups meet. We will repeat small units of the exercises we have learned so far, and then combine them. I think it's important to have a practice where you just focus on yourself and your feelings, there will be an opportunity to do that.
All interested are welcome!

It's all in the details!

INFORMATION

about training

Our association and dojos place great emphasis on quality instruction, so we limit the number of participants in training. Always call to see if there is an opportunity to join! This rule is to protect those who are already practicing with us, as progress can only be made well if everyone is given enough attention and space. You may have to wait to join a group, but in return we give you 1 month of free training so you can decide to continue with confidence and without doubt.

What equipment do you need?

Nothing special, t-shirt and warmer bottom. In the aikido trainings we are barefoot, tatami. The workouts no one needs to appear in a white aikido or karate suit to try it. Later, if you have already decided that you want to persevere in the aikido training sessions and take the exam, a white practicing dress is already recommended.

What does aikido training consist of?

The workout consists of three main parts. There is a full body warm-up in the first half hour. This is basic gymnastics exercises and special exercises used in martial arts, aikido. Part of the warm-up some “near-ground” exercises, such as rolling. In the middle part we practice some aikido technique, if possible with different weapons. At the end of the training we will do some kind of relaxing movements, which may vary from dojo to dojo.

TESTIMONIALS

about us and training

Through a friend, I came across Master Nishio's system and grabbed it. But maybe even more important to me, I really like my training partners. I've never met such a helpful and supportive community anywhere, it's very inspiring, for me it's one of the most important aspects.
For me, in addition to the many repetitive boring daily routines, a different world. In that case, I'm not thinking about anything, I can immerse myself in what I'm doing, and it refills, soothes. Absolute self time :-)
I recharge very pleasantly both physically and mentally! It helps maintain the flexibility of my muscles, or due to my age, slows down the aging process. My self-confidence is on top every day too! It just positively affects my life.

Master Shoji Nishio once said that AIKIDO is nothing but a method that can be applied in any martial art. It is undeniable that practicing AIKIDO almost always means practicing martial arts. If AIKIDO is a method, are you sure you are limited to martial arts? read more
