AIKIDO

NEWS

Aikido consists of techniques with weapons and bare hands using the strength of the opponent not to defeat him, but to annihilate his attack.

​

In aikido everything is a circle, everything is suppleness, everything is mouvement, everything is harmony. Aikido is the way of a physical culture, of a moral culture, it is born in the traditional martial arts of Japan for the accomplishment of the human being.

​

What is fabulous about aikido is that the whole being aspires for the the combat not to take place. The combat is bad in itself. Martial art must be love. Some say that aikido is a form of religious expression of Japanese martial arts. In any case in Aikido there is no match, no competition, no championship, the combat is bad. It is undoubtedly the most harmonious, the most graceful discipline of the budo..
