What is Aikido?

Rooted in Japanese jujitsu and traditional swordsmanship, Aikido is practiced in a spirit of cooperation not competition. An attacker defeats themselves with their own momentum and with no contests of strength, it is appropriate for all statures. Learn throws, immobilizations and safe falls.
