Taido is a Japanese martial art that focuses on agility, strategy and counter techniques in three dimensions to defeat an opponent. Movements emphasise evasion rather than blocking, minimising damage and making the art suitable for all ages and sizes.
Founded in 1997, UNSW Taido is known for their easygoing nature, great spirit and excellent performances at international performances.
Beginner classes start on the first week of each semester, but beginners are welcome throughout the year.
