Aikido is a modern Japanese martial art that enables one to defend against an opponent of superior size and strength. It is a defensive system of continuous, circular motions to harmonise with the opponent’s energy, using joint locks, pins and throws. When properly practiced, successful defence is achieved through minimal action. It is very suitable for kids, ladies and even seniors to practice.
