Aikido is a Japanese martial art that promotes self-awareness and personal development. Its techniques are entirely focused on self-defence, and involve unbalancing and controlling an aggressor without recourse to violence. Instead, relaxed, circular movements blend with the movement of the attack, and destabilize the attacker using his or her own momentum. The training develops physical stamina, resilience, suppleness, co- ordination, and timing. On a deeper level, aikido teaches how to face stressful situations with focus, resolve, and clarity. There are no competitions, and men and women of all sizes and physical conditions can practice safely together.
