The Spirit of Aikido Budo – Harmony
Aikido is a traditional, non-competitive, Japanese martial art meaning “the way of harmony with universal energy (ki, prana, chi).” Shin Shin Toitsu Aikido, meaning “mind-body-unified”
Aikido explores the state of mind-body union through graceful, dynamic self-defense movements. Instead of responding to conflict with muscular force, Ki Aikidoka use ki and respect the training partner’s energy.
By flowing with it and converting the attack into a roll or a pin, the practice results in a positive, invigorating experience for both participants. Ki Aikido is beneficial for everyone regardless of size, age, gender or physical ability.
