What is Aikido ?
Aikido is a Japanese form of self-defence based on circular movement and minimal effort for maximum effect. An aggressor’s force is redirected away from the defender, who then throws or immobilises the attacker.
Aikido is not a religion or cult. Aikido does, however, contain ethical and philosophical teachings. One such teaching is that minimal force should be used to achieve one’s goal. This goal is to preserve one’s own life without inflicting undue injury on one’s assailant.
