Aikido is a Japanese martial art, which was developed in the 1900’s by Morehi Ueshiba. Aikido was formed from traditional Samurai arts such as Ju Jutsu, Ken Jutsu and other traditional Japanese arts. Post War the purpose of Aikido and its philosophy evolved into harmonizing with one’s opponent with the purpose of blending and unifying with negative energy thus ending a struggle before it can cause harm. On a physical level, Aikido involves joint locks, falls, rolls and throws.
Aikido involves training weapons. In this Aikido curriculum there are three (3) different training implements (traditional weapons utilized at some point in the training) including wooden swords, Jo (wooden short staff) and Tanto (wooden knife). Minimum: 4 / Maximum 12 Participants
