WHAT IS AIKIDO?
Aikido can provide many things for each individual, ranging from physical to mental to spiritual. In essence, Aikido is a traditional Japanese martial art that is based on protection of self and those around us. It provides practitioners with the option to refrain from inflicting injury to an attacker. It is non-aggressive in nature, and is ideally used to control and diffuse confrontation, rather than combat it.
Its three syllables translate to Harmony (Ai), Energy (ki), Way (do), and is thus known as "Way of Harmonizing Energy".
Aikido does not rely on muscular strength. It is effective by maximizing stability, engaging our hara (core/center), and then rearranging an attack through proper use of timing and angles. Because of this, Aikido can be practiced by everyone, regardless of size, age, gender, or strength.
