Aikido is the art of peace for many reasons, most of which must be experienced through practice to be understood. Aikido practitioners seek to blend with any attack while remaining balanced. From a position of balance, the attacker is placed in a position of imbalance, and thrown or pinned.
Through this style of martial art strength, speed, and flexibility are not required for competence, or martial effectiveness. In Aikido, students strive to master evasions, attack re-direction, joint-locks, throws, and tumbling.

Aikido is a martial art developed by Morihei Ueshiba (O’Sensei) that seeks to protect the defender and attacker.
“In the Art of Peace we never attack. An attack is proof that one is out of control. Never run away from any kind of challenge, but do not try to suppress or control an opponent unnaturally. Let attackers come any way they like and then blend with them. Never chase after opponents. Redirect each attack and get firmly behind it.” (Art of Peace No. 83)
