Aikido is a martial art from Japan, whose founder Morihei Ueshiba
became legendary for combining his invincible combat skills with his philosophy of universal harmony.
Drawing its inspiration from the fighting skills of the samurai, aikido can harmlessly disarm and control an adversary or inflict more serious damage through the application of its underlying principles. Due to its approach of using a co-operative approach to practice, rather than on physical strength or stamina, aikido is suitable for people of all ages and levels of fitness.
