Hans Boersma Aikido: Aikido in Haarlem and Uitgeest

What is Aikido?

Aikido is a Japanese martial art in which you use your opponent’s strength. In Aikido, we have an open attitude and we try to avoid conflicts at all times. If an attack is inevitable, we try to maintain the non-aggressive ‘mindset’ in order to overpower the opponent with a throw and/or joint lock.
