Founded in Montreal in 2009, and affiliated with the International Takemusu Aikido Federation (www.itaf-international.org), the “Way of the Samurai” Aikido Academy is a martial arts academy dedicated to the teaching of the modern way of the warrior or Samurai known as – Bushido. This way was practiced in Japan for more than 1000 years and continues to influence Japanese culture to the present.
We teach Bushido based on the practice of one of the most famous Japanese martial arts, Aikido, a martial art created by O’Sensei Morihei Ueshiba resulting from a life entirely dedicated to the intensive practice of martial arts.
Aikido teaches us:
- to be more balanced physically and mentally
- to overcome our anger
- to be more disciplined and to be wiser
- to defend ourselves from our enemies, including ourselves!
