Aikido is a non competitive Martial Art that emphasizes blending with an opponents attack. The essence of Aikdo techniques are circular in nature. The movements are designed to coordinate the attacking and defending bodies in order to redirect the natural flow of energy of the attack and neutralize it. In this way, Aikido harmonizes all motion in a positive way instead of trying to conflict with it.
