Japanese Terms Study Material


Learning Aikido techniques is hard work… Learning the Japanese terms that accompany the study of techniques can be just as daunting! Our Aikido Glossary Helper is one way we are helping beginner students get to grips with Japanese terms used in Aikido. To further aid students, we decided to release a series of more fun activities to help you study and remember some of the most basic terms used in Aikido practice.
