Derived from the samurai fighting art of Aikijutsu of ancient Japan, Aikido is termed the “Modern Martial Art” because it places an emphasis on the development of harmony and cooperation rather than competition and the violent subduing of opponents.
Due to its very effective but non-violent nature, Aikido is a martial art that provides a powerful form of self-defence. Purely defensive, techniques in Aikido are not use for the purpose of attack.Location
