FIRST SHODAN FOR AIKIDO YAMATO DOJO

Andreas Matusiak of Aikido Yamato Dojo was promoted to the grade of Shodan (1st degree black belt) in Aikido.

Aikido is a Japanese martial art which utilises the natural and flowing body movements and applies them to physical techniques.

These techniques together with the subtle approach of redirecting an attacker’s energy produce a harmonious results through a cooperative spirit that gives the Aikido practitioner a remarkable mental balance, strength and sensitivity while learning a potentially devastating martial art.

This process helps the Aikidoka to develop the ability to resolve real-life daily conflicts and stressful situations in a calm, practical and positive manner.

Aikido is highly effective against violent aggression and an effective self-defence system which focuses on the neutralisation of an attack without inflicting injury.

Andreas have met the technical requirements and has passed successfully the examination. The examination consisted of a practical timed freestyle demonstration of various technical aspects as well the explanation of techniques.
