Aikido, a unique approach to self-defense, exercise and stress relief for the entire family as well as law enforcement professionals, offers an option for those pursuing a more balanced well-being. Using Aikido’s circular blending techniques, a physical attack can be easily and safely neutralized or, if needed, ended with finality.  Practitioners achieve a strong, yet flexible, relaxed body as well as a calm and clear mind. There are no contracts, contests or fighting, and the atmosphere is friendly and supportive.


“We teach anyone how to defend themselves without using strength, aggression or violence,” says chief instructor and Aikido author Greg O'Connor, a 6th Degree Black Belt with more than forty years’ experience and a State of New Jersey Police Training Commission Defensive Tactics instructor.
