Aikido literally means "The Way of Harmony"
Aikido is a traditional Japanese System of self-defence involving throws and joint locks techniques.
It is essentially non-competitive and non-violent. It is regarded as a subtle and graceful martial art, effective but also suited for gentle people. It addresses moral values and offers a practical way of life.
It is the objective of Aikido to contribute to the quality of our society by encouraging a chivalric and moral code of behaviour. Students of Aikido train both body and spirit with the intention of becoming sincere and more rounded individuals.
