What is Aikido?

Aikido is a Japanese martial art that integrates joint locks, throws, and off balancing techniques to subdue attackers. Aikido’s hallmark is its intention for causing as little injury as possible in a conflict. Increased coordination, flexibility, balance, and awareness are by-products of practicing Aikido. Aikido relies on correct body positioning/centering to allow the practitioner to create maximum power and efficiency in its martial arts technique.  Aikido also relies on the use of bokken (sword), jo (staff), and tanto (knife) in honing its principles. Its graceful moves and strategy also serve as a metaphor for the non-violent resolution of conflict and for the avoidance of stress by seeking creative solutions.
