Aikido Tomás Sanchez

Aikido is a modern and peaceful martial art, developed from the techniques of the Japanese samurai. Fundamental in Aikido is, that aggression directed to yourself can be guided/controlled instead of using lethal force. This principle is found in the techniques to end the attack by using the attackers own energy and momentum.

Aikido techniques can be recognized by their harmonious, often circular or spiraled movements. The right timing and correct body movement provides the opportunity to take over your opponent’s attack, taking his balance, and immobilizing your opponent.


The Tomas Sanchez Dojo is located in the neighberhood of Aluche which is West of Madrid very close to highway A-5 and the Casa de Campo Park where the ZOO is located.
