What is Aikido

Aikido is a modern Japanese martial art developed by Morihei Ueshiba. It is a synthesis of his training in Daitō-ryū Aiki-jūjutsu, and philosophy. Aikido is often translated as “the way of harmonious spirit”.

Aikido is based on movement, and our techniques rely on understanding the relationship between your partners’ movements and your own.

Today Aikido is found all over the world in various styles, with broad ranges of interpretation and emphasis.
