About Aikido

Aikido, a martial art rooted in both tradition and modernity, was established by Morihei Ueshiba in Japan. It encompasses a range of techniques including joint locks, throws, pinning maneuvers, and strikes. Additionally, Aikido incorporates the utilization of traditional weapons such as the Bo (a 6-foot staff), the Jo (a 4-foot staff), the Ken/Bokken (a sword/wooden sword), and the tanto (a knife).

The distinguishing factor of Aikido lies in its spirit. Unlike many other martial arts that focus on self-defense methods aimed at causing severe harm to opponents, Aikido practitioners prioritize neutralizing attacks without inflicting harm upon the attacker. This is not to suggest that Aikido techniques lack effectiveness; on the contrary, they can be highly impactful and devastating to potential assailants. Nevertheless, the primary objective is control rather than injury. Such an approach fosters a state of serenity within Aikido practitioners, which is crucial for the successful execution of various techniques.
