Aikido is a traditional Japanese martial art founded by Morihei Ueshiba, also known as O'Sensei (Great Teacher), and based on the principles of balance and harmony. It is an effective non-aggressive style of self-defense, focusing on awareness and taking control of a situation instead of being controlled by it. When practicing Aikido, we utilize circular movement to redirect attacks and we blend and 'lead' the attacker into a variety of throws or joint-tightening techniques. Because the emphasis is on blending with an attack instead of clashing head-on, the practice of Aikido does not rely on strength and can be enjoyed by men, women and children of all ages.
