Aikido is a martial art whose techniques seek to redirect the energy and body movement of an attacker. Aikido is a modern martial art which was created by Morihei Ueshiba with the intent to create an art that practitioners could use to defend themselves while also protecting their attacker from injury.
The literal translation is Way (do) of Harmony (ai) with Spirit (ki) is a powerful and dynamic martial art which is non-aggressive and defensive with emphasis on cooperation rather than competition.
