Martial Arts Programs at UTM

At UTM we offer Aikido, Judo, and Tai Chi as part of our martial arts programs.

Aikido

Aikido, a traditional Japanese martial art, relies on circular movements to redirect an attacker’s force and take their balance. Aikido employs throws, joint locks, and strikes. Renshinkai Aikido, the style practiced here, is known for its sharp, precise movements and effective self-defense techniques. By training proper form, superior position, and circular movement, the student learns technique which is effective against larger and stronger opponents. New students are always welcome!
