Aikido

 

The word Aikido isĀ composed of three Japanese characters (on right, top to bottom): ai, meaning harmony; ki, meaning spirit or energy; and do, meaning way. Making one translation of Aikido 'the easy of spiritual harmony.'


Like other martial arts Aikido is studied for self-defense and self-improvement. What makes Aikido different from other martial arts is that an Aikidoist develops methods of self-defense that will not injure an attacker.

Ippon kumite also involves basic, prearranged techniques, but adds emphasis on body movements and proper distancing from the opponent.

 

The movements of Aikido harmonize attacks rather than meeting them head-on. Instead of using kicks and punches that could possible seriously injure someone, an Aikidoist learns to use various wristlocks and throws to control attackers. As a result techniques can be practiced at full power without fear of injury.

 

In Aikido there are no competitions, the Aikidoist betters his or her self without belittling others.

"Aikido is the principle of nonresistance.Because it is nonresistant it is victorious from the beginning. Those with evil intentions or contentious thoughts are instantly vanquished."
