Aikido is written in Japanese using three characters. They are translated as “Ai” – Harmony, “Ki” – Spirit, and “Do” – the Way; or in one translation, “The way of spiritual harmony.” It is a comparatively modern and extremely sophisticated martial art. Being purely self-defensive, it stresses the avoidance of conflict as an integral part of its philosophical and technical tenets. Join sensei Russell Alvey for an overview, demonstration and short introduction to this fascinating martial art.

North Texas Aikido’s instructor, Russell Alvey, Sensei has trained in and taught Aikido for well over 30 years and currently holds the rank of Godan (5th-degree black belt).
