Mat Hulse - the Instructor
Aikido training benefits the bodies, minds and spirits of those who study.
The strategies and the techniques keep working in extreme situations; when you really need them too.
Aikido principles are whole and universal. They are real because they work in the physical dimension. The lessons learnt through your body can be applied in your daily, work and family life.
The dojo is a place where people come to improve themselves. Careless and brutal training is not tolerated. Senior students care for junior students, as was done for them. We train slowly and precisely to learn what is really happening. When the movement is correct, speeding it up makes it very powerful. Aikido is a life long path of improvement and learning.
The Head Instructor of the Braidwood Dojo is Matthew Hulse. He has trained martial arts for over 25 years, Aikido since 1996. He holds Nidan rank from Aikikai Headquarters Japan and a coaching certificate from the Australian Ju-jitsu Federation.
