  • Aikido Techniques


    Many of the strikes (打ち, uchi) of aikido are often said to resemble cuts from a sword or other grasped object, which may suggest origins in techniques intended for armed combat. Other techniques, which appear to explicitly be punches (tsuki), are also practiced as thrusts with a knife or sword. Kicks are generally reserved for upper-level variations; reasons cited include that falls from kicks are especially dangerous, and that kicks (high kicks in particular) were uncommon during the types of combat prevalent in feudal Japan.

  • Objective of Aikido


    The main objective of Aikido is to attain harmony of body, mind and soul to show the attacker the irrationality of his own actions. It means a way of energy unification within and with the opponent. However, like other martial arts, the objective of Aikido is not to defeat or hurt or achieve victory over the opponent. It aims at winning over oneself than on someone else.
