What is Aikido Plus
Aikido Plus is a combination of several martial arts with an emphasis on the circular nature of Aikido. We use all types of environmental weapons, and make the connection between those weapons and empty hand movements adding Aikido applications. Anything you can do with a weapon, you can do with your empty hands and vise a versa. We use this concept, relaxation allows for speed, speed results in power. Add circular movements to your existing martial arts.
Here are some Aikido Plus videos.
