AIMS AND SPECIAL CHARACTERISTICS OF AIKIDO
One of the goals of aikido is to contribute to the realisation of a rich and peaceful society through mental and spiritual training.
One of the main concepts in aikido is the blending of your ki
(spirit or energy) with that of your partner. Because blending with your partner's power means there is no competition or conflict between you, aikido does not require a great deal of physical strength and is therefore a Japanese martial art that anyone at any age can do.
