Welcome at Sanshinkai Aikido Utrecht. We are an aikido club with a diverse and exciting training programme. Aikido is suitable for everyone: men and women, young and old, with or without sporting experience. Not winning, but harmony is at the heart of aikido practice: harmony within yourself, with others and with your surroundings. Additionally, aikido makes you more (body) confident and aware of your own abilities. You increase your flexibility, develop your trust and understanding of your body and, even better, get fitter and feel great. Want to know more about aikido? Please see here for more information.
