What is Aikido?
Developed by Morihei Ueshiba, known to practitioners as“O-Sensei” (Great Teacher), Aikido is the marriage of the physical techniques of Daito-ryu Aikijujitsu and the philosophy of Omoto-kyo Shinto.
Aikido utilitzes throws, takedowns, and redirections to resolve conflicts. Aikido techniques are based not on physical power, but on the fluid movement of Ki (energy) from one’s Hara (center of balance).
Through Aikido one will learn to move with total freedom, unrestrained by rigid forms. One learns that trusting one's heart is the most important element to self-defense. Grace comes in the form of flowing movements. Power comes from the confidence of knowing one is safe.
