Aikido is a Japanese self-defence Martial Art that employs the energy and aggression of an attacker to instigate a series of locks and holds and throws. This Art consists of traditional Samurai Ju-Jitsu technique and values. The founder of Aikido, Morihei Ueshiba Sensei, adapted the skills and philosophy of the Samurai warrior into the martial art we know today, a very efficient and comprehensive method of self-defence to open-handed and weapon attacks.
