Welcome to Steel Rivers Aikido
Steel Rivers Aikido is a not-for-profit Aikido club that currently holds weekly classes at the Wilmerding YMCA in Wilmerding, Pennsylvania under instructor Alan Paris.
Aikido is a martial art that can benefit students in self-defense, fitness and stress management. Students of all sizes and fitness levels are encouraged to participate, as Aikido focuses on using the momentum of the attacker rather than the physical strength of the practitioner. In addition, one of the key benefits that many students experience is learning how to minimize injury from falls.
