History

Aikido is a modern non-violent, non-aggressive Japanese martial art that was developed in the early 1900s by Morihei Ueshiba (1883-1969). In Japanese, Aikido means “the Way of Harmony with the Force and Principle of Nature”. Aikido is derived from Japan’s traditional Budo (the Way of martial arts), yet goes beyond the realm of Budo; it is a path on which the keen edge of martial art is used as a “Way” to spiritual growth.
