What is Aikido?

Devoted to cooperation rather than competition, Aikido is a martial art and movement meditation created in the 20th century by Morihei Ueshiba, O'Sensei (1883-1969). His creation is Aikido, a defensive art form and a practice of mental and spiritual development rooted in the ancient Bushido tradition of Japan. Through training, practitioners cultivate self-awareness and resiliency, a powerful center and a calm spirit. We also develop what are first just techniques, but later become intuitive responses to resolving conflict in ourselves and in our environment.
