A martial art that focuses on self-defense, aikido teaches its students how to use the efforts of an attacker to their advantage. At Aikido Bootcamp, students team up to practice these techniques. They take turns acting as the aggressor and the victim, which provides perspective from both sides of a physical encounter. As their experience increases, students develop trust in each other, enabling them to practice with more intensity without getting injured or having sessions dissolve into a deadlocked arm-wrestling match.
