“The Art of Peace Begins With You”

Morihei Ueshiba, Founder of Aikido

Aikido is a traditional martial art and spiritual practice which emphasises the transformation of the practitioner. It is not a sport and there is no competition. Instead, participants take turns to practice basic forms and general principles of body movement, relational qualities and martial principles and techniques. This is done in the spirit of co-operation, which is fundamental to the way of aiki. The overall aim of such a practice is refining ourselves as a human being.
