Aikido – the power of harmony

The Japanese martial art of Aikido (pronounced “eye-key-doe”) is a martial art unlike any other. Aikido translates as “The Way of Harmony”. It is often called “The Art of Peace” due to its philosophy of non-violence whereby an Aikido practitioner actively tries to protect an attacker from harm. Aikido teaches us how to respond to aggression with compassion, and how to resolve conflict in positive ways. There are no offensive movements such as punches or kicks, no competitions, and no-one is harmed.
