What Makes Aikido Unique?
Aikido originated in Japan and was developed by Morihei Ueshiba. It is a defensive martial art structured around deflection of an opponent's force and holistic self-care of body and spirit. Aikido uses a combination of rolls, locks and throws to protect oneself against an attacker. This means that aikido is a non-attacking, relatively non-violent martial art.
