Today's topic is AIKIDO.
Aikido, was founded by a man named Morihei Ueshiba. Morihei Ueshiba was a practitioner of several martial arts which include and are not limited to: Jui jitsu, Spear fighting, and fencing. He felt that something was missing from the arts forms and that is when he began to develop Aikido. Morihei Ueshiba strongly believed that one must develop "KI" or spiritual energy. Here is a link that will explain further in depth: Aikido History
Aikido is a great self defense martial art. One of our employes visited a local Akido Club in Mililani, HI and told us the moves and techniques he watched them perform were very balanced. The practitioner would use his opponents energy and direction against him using very little movement and power. Here is a video of some Aikido moves and technique:

We are official sellers of Aikodo equipment! We carry the Uniforms, Hakama, Jo, and Bokken.

Today's product of the day is: The Indian Club. How many of you know what Indian Clubs are? If you do not know what they are do not be ashamed because even we didn't really know what they were. Until we did our research of course. Indian Clubs originated in India were there soldiers would use weighted wood clubs for strength training. They called it club swinging. The British soldiers brought it to Europe and from Europe it reached the United States. indianclubs.com/History
Please visit this link for the benefits of Indian Club Training: Training
We also found a plethora of you-tube videos online.
We were intrigued by the benefits of Club swinging and decided to make some our very own (first photo). Of course when they arrived we did a test run with one of our employes and here is what he said, "Wow! I can feel the tension across my whole body." After a few exercises he said he felt great. Stop by our local location today and try them out! 45-525 Luluku Rd, Kaneohe HI 96744.
If you have any questions please do not hesitate to ask.
Have a great day!
