What are your first thoughts when you here “martial arts“? Do you imagine muscular boxers or maybe flexible Buddhist priests, karate masters breaking wooden blocks or ninjutsu practitioniers throwing shurikens? No matter what kind of methods will be used or what kind of phylosophy will be followed, all of these martial arts are used for the same purpose: to defend from attacker. However, there is one martial art that practitioners could use to defend themselves while also protecting their attacker from injury.

This martial art is named Aikido and is developed by Morihei Ueshiba as a synthesis of his martial studies, philosophy, and religious beliefs. This Friday Lithuanian Aikido Aikikai Federations „Sukūrys“ instructor and HASHI member Kotryna will talk about Aikido oneness. You will be introduced to Aikido history, what kind of profit you will get if you practice this martial art. You will get to know what is going on in training session and what kind of weapons are used. Also Kotryna will show you how Aikido looks in reality.

Don‘t run away after the presentation because all the questions you will have, you can discuss in front of tea cup!

Time: October 3rd (FRIDAY), 6 pm
Place: Sugihara house, Vaižganto g. 30
