Who are we? 


Founded in Szeged, Hungary, Zumm Aikido Association is an NGO for practicing and developing Aikido, a Japanese martial art. We are a small , divergent group of people, who likes to develop themselves with the tools of Aikido. We live in Hungary, mostly in Budapest and we practice as much as we can. 

Our main teacher is Gergely Csák (currently holds the rank of 5. dan aikikai), who practices Aikido since 1998. Gergely is a journalist, hatha yoga instructor and massage therapist as well. (Click here to see his website.

Our dojo is located in the heart of Budapest; visitors, beginners and advenced aikidokas are welcome. Please, contact us if you want to join our trainings, we speak English, French and German too. On our trainings you get personal attention from our teachers and prepare for a long run because Aikido is not a short term, „easy come, easy go”-sport. (Actually, no martial art is like that.) 


What is Aikido?

  Founded by Morihei Ueshiba, Aikido is a martial art that focuses on harmonizing with your opponent to bring peaceful resolutions to situations involving conflict. The Japanese martial art of Aikido is a comprehensive system of throwing, joint-locking, striking and pinning techniques, coupled with training in traditional Japanese weapons such as the sword, staff and knife. Founded by Morihei Ueshiba early in the twentieth century following his own extensive study of various armed and unarmed martial systems, Aikido represents a potent distillation of centuries of Japanese martial knowledge. Upon closer examination, practitioners will find from Aikido what they are looking for, whether it is applicable self-defense technique, spiritual enlightenment, physical health or peace of mind. O-Sensei emphasized the moral and spiritual aspects of this art, placing great weight on the development of harmony and peace. „The Way of Harmony of the Spirit” is one way that „Aikido” may be translated into English.
