Aikido is a martial art based on the laws of nature.
Aikido is a relatively new form, but originated from the vast experience of the past, due to O-Sensei Morihei Ueshiba’s titanic work. In essence, Aikido not only provides the necessary skills for self-defense, but also fosters self-confidence, character, respect for oneself and to others. It teaches a person how to transform his aggressiveness and the difficulties of everyday life into joy and self-improvement. With proper practice, it allows us to introduce our mind and body under the control of our will and conscience and, thus, realize our true human nature as human beings on Earth.
