About Aikido

Aikido is a Japanese martial art developed in the 1920s by Master Morihei Ueshiba.  Aikido emphasizes balance, positioning and leverage rather than strength and force, and is based on the principle that body and mind are one.  The movements of aikido are circular and flowing, and help students develop inner strength and well-conditioned bodies.  Aikido is an excellent means to instill confidence, self-control, and discipline while providing an opportunity for physical development and exploration.
