Aikido is a Japanese martial art developed by Morihei Ueshiba. Aikido is often translated as “the Way of unifying (with) life energy” or as “the Way of harmonious spirit”. Ueshiba’s goal was to create an art that practitioners could use to defend themselves while also protecting their attacker from injury.
Aikido is performed by blending with the motion of the attacker and redirecting the force of the attack rather that opposing it head-on. This requires very little physical energy, as the aikidoka (aikido practitioner) “leads” the attacker’s momentum using entering and turning movements. The techniques are completed with various throws or joint locks. Aikido can be categorized under the general umbrella or grappling arts.
In addition, Aikido is safe for children (boys and girls) to learn since it doesn’t require much power and less injury risk. Aikido is not teaching about violence. It is more in developing the gross motor skills and self defense.
Aikido ASP is conducted every Friday from 2.00 – 3.00 pm.
