Parent Organization: Club Sports
The goal of the Aikido Club is to promote interest in the Japanese martial way of Aikido on campus. Aikido, the way (do) of blending with (ai) energy or spirit (ki) is a powerful and compassionate Japanese martial art. By using throws and immobilizing holds, an aikido student redirects and neutralizes the force of the opponent's attack. Aikido's circular movements do not rely on strength.
The UVM Aikido Club practices on campus and at Aikido of Champlain Valley Dojo at 257 Pine St. in Burlington [a short 20 minute walk from the Waterman building].
