No Fall, Low Impact Aikido for Adults

Aikido Orlando Dojo is opening new martial art class No Fall, Low Impact Aikido. Class is designed specially for mature adults with physical limitations. With small modifications everybody at any age and condition can practice (with success) Aikido. O Sensei (Aikido founder) actively practiced Aikido to age 86!

Aikido Practice can offer a lot of benefits. We focused only on health and psychological ones.  

Health benefits –Aikido practice results in the steady improvement of physical and mental condition in daily life.
Aikido training emphasize: proper breathing, balance and posture.
Many Aikido exercises improve joints flexibility, range of motions and help preserve muscle mass and bone density.
Regular training gradually builds endurance and strength.
Exercise routine helps to manage healthy body weight.

Psychological benefits – Aikido exercises have the effect of increasing body awareness and concentration. Aikido practice helps to focus on present tasks and can improve memory and coordination. 
Non- aggressive and non-competitive nature of Aikido can build self confidence and self esteem. Aikido training gradually leads to less antagonistic attitude toward any conflicts, emotional or physical. 
Practicing with different partners during Aikido classes builds strong community bonds, friendships, reduces daily stress and help to preserve or create social skills.  Cooperative spirit in practice creates a friendly, welcoming atmosphere, in which people of different genders, ages, and physical capacities can come together to learn Aikido and help each other along the path to a greater understanding of its principles.

No Fall Classes Principles written by Janet Rosen

  • Each student is an adult with the ability to judge his level of participation and his need to sit out or take a break,
  • No kneeling, rolling or falling is required
  • A variety of functional deficits, such as trouble with manual dexterity, sensory issues, poor range of motion will be accommodated
  • The practice is primarily principle-based exercises; however the attacks, movements and techniques will be martially sound (per my level of understanding and ability) and practical application will be demonstrated
