What is Aikido?


Aikido is a martial art originating from Japan, developed by the Samurai. Today's Aikido was founded by Morihei Ueshiba who died in the late 1960s.


Aikido is a defensive martial art, wich means, there is no attack and no competition. Consequently there is no opponent during training but rather a partner. Our training partner puts himself at the disposal for performing the offense so we can practice.


Aikido consists of round, harmonic movements that can easily be spotted when watching. The main purpose ist to consume the energy of the offense and to drag the partner in a circular movement to throw and fixate the partner. Despite it’s defensive nature, Aikido is an effective self-defense that needs a lot of practice. Aikido is not a fight between two people but a common home of practitioners.


To exercise Aikido you need only sweatpants, a t-shirt and the readyness for physical contact and falling.
