What is Aikido?
 
Aikido - The Modern Martial Art
Morihei Ueshiba O'Sensei
 
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. Aikido translates as “the way of harmony with the universe”.

Morihei Ueshiba, known to Aikido practitioners as O'Sensei (Great Teacher), a recognized master of Aikijutsu, developed what is now known as Aikido in order to strengthen and unify the mind, body and spirit.
 
Self-defence
 
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.
 
Circular Movements Without Strength
 
Aikido techniques involve large, flowing, circular movements where your partner's energy and strength is guided into a different direction. Since these circular movements rely on timing, balance and control, rather than physical strength and aggression, Aikido is particularly well suited to all persons regardless of size, age or sex.
