Aikido is a Japanese martial art that is characterised by smooth and circular movements. Its origin lies in the ancient art of Samurai sword fencing. Aikido is about disturbing an attacker’s balance while staying calm and centred, which allows you to blend with the attack and effectively redirect it using smooth and seemingly effortless movements. Body positioning, coordination and flexibility are more important than strength and weight, which means that everyone can practice aikido.
