The unique Japanese martial art of Aikido was developed by by Morihei Ueshiba almost a century ago. Aikido is often translated as ‘The way of unifying life energy’. This style is often mistakenly confused with Judo or Kendo Bogu. It’s unique form uses the force and motion of the attacker and re-directs it instead of attacking it head on. These techniques use turning movements, throws and joint locks to manipulate opponents.
