Natural Awakenings South Jersey

It’s Self-Defense Awareness Month at Aikido Agatsu Dojos

Agatsu Dojos is an organization of aikido schools with three locations. In August, each location will host free one-hour programs for attendees ages 15 and up. The classes will take place from 7:30 to 8:30 p.m. on August 13 at the Moorestown location, August 14 at Washington Township and August 15 at Stratford. The event will introduce the Japanese martial art and teach participants safety tips and introductory concepts.

Based in the principles of redirection of force, aikido uses the force of the attacker for effective resolution without aggression. In this relaxed and enjoyable program, skilled presenters will guide participants through a simple class with an emphasis on awareness, responses and techniques that can help save them from harm’s way.

Locations: 7 E. Main St., Moorestown; 117 Greentree Rd., Turnersville; 31 S. White Horse Pike, Stratford. For more information and preregistration (required), call 856-435-2667 or visit
