Aikido is the evolution of the ancient Japanese martial arts. The result of research
by Master Morihei Ueshiba (1883 - 1969).
Ai - Ki - Do literally means "the way of harmony" and it was the search for harmony
with others and the whole universe which was the aim of the founder.
Technically it can be distinguished from other martial arts for its essentially
circular movements,non-violence and no competition.
Movements are based on the harmonization of the energy of the attacker and the defender,
to avoid a clash of opposing forces, creating a path that passes through an education
to relationships with others.
