Aikido is a non-competitive Japanese martial art which was developed early in the 20th century 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 where martial arts are used as a way of spiritual growth.
Through regular practice Aikido can be used as a means of self defence and as a way to enhance general health, flexiblity and confidence.
