About Aikido

Aikido has two main attributes. When one trains in Aikido, one learns not only how to execute the many techniques of Aikido but also how to receive the techniques without getting hurt in the learning process. This is called Ukemi or the art of falling. In Aikido, one learns many ways to keep ones body safe from an attack and many ways to control the attack of another.

Aikido’s main principle is to utilize the energy of the attacker. Aikido will show you how to redirect the attacker’s energy and use it to control the attacker’s body. Through years of training, your body and mind begin to connect and you begin to become receptive to the energy emanating from your attackers body and without thinking, use that energy to resolve the attack to a peaceful end.
