Aikido is a Japanese martial art created during the 1920s by Morihei Ueshiba (1883 ~ 1969) Aikido is performed by blending with the motion of the attacker and redirecting the force of the attack rather than opposing it head-on. Aikido is not a competition. The goal of Aikido training is not perfection of a step or skill, but rather improving one’s character according to the rules of nature.ai - joining, unifying, combining, fit ki - spirit, energy, mood, morale. do - way, path
