TU AIKIDO COMMUNITY

 

OPERATIONS, ACTIVITY FIELDS AND PURPOSES OF THE COMMUNITY

Most of the members of METU Aikido Group, which is the largest dojos of Turkey together with more than 200 members together with the Child Aikido group within the country participate in many Aikido seminars both in Turkey and abroad every year. Although the near eastern martial arts clubs are not considered to be of interest to women, almost half of the METU Aikido Community is made up of women. The aim of the community is to correct this false perception and to spread and promote Aikido further by cultivating technically advanced, moral sportsmen. Apart from that, children's Aikido work together with their work to provide physical, social and psychological development of children, as well as respect, cooperation and harmony with professional achievement that provides self-confidence, patience and internal discipline to overcome children. The METU Aikido Society follows the style and principles of Tamura Shihan and his student Nebi Vural Sensei. Every year in December and May, we organize two international seminars. Together with the Eurasia Aikido Organization, we have been organizing and hosting the International Aikido Festival, which has attracted 300 athletes from about 20 countries every May for 7 years.
