What Is Aikido?
Aikido can be translated as the “Way of Harmonious Spirit”. It is a relatively new martial art created by Morihei Ueshiba and based on ancient Japanese fighting techniques. Although a dynamic and very effective form of self-defense, taught to the Tokyo Riot Police, Aikido strives for non-aggression and the peaceful resolution of conflict.
Aikido can be practiced by men and women of any age. There are no fights and no competitions in Aikido. Rather, students work together in pairs or groups, helping each other to learn and improve. Students set their own goals and the pace for their own training.
Aikido provides a good cardiovascular workout; increases general stamina and core fitness and contributes to a leaner and more flexible physique. The mental benefits include improved mental focus, self-confidence and a more positive outlook. More than the physical though, the goal of aikido is self-improvement and self-awareness through regular and consistent training.
