What is Aikido?

Aikido is a Japanese martial art focusing on self-defense that is based on harmonising your movement and intention with that of an aggressive attack.

In Aikido there is no aggression, tension or competition. Classes are suitable for all levels of fitness and may be practised equally by men and women of any size, age or ability. Aikido techniques consist of entering and turning movements that redirect the momentum of an opponent's attack, and a throw or joint lock that terminates the technique.
