What is Aikido?

Aikido is a powerful and compassionate Japanese martial art. By using throws and immobilizing holds, an aikido student redirects and neutralizes the force of the opponent's attack. Aikido's circular movements do not rely on strength.

ai – joining, unifying, combining, fitting

ki – spirit, energy, mood, morale

 – way, path
