Aikido is a Japanese martial art which encourages non-violence. Aikido doesn’t organize competitions, racings or clashes, it focuses more on the physical, mental, ethical and spiritual aspects.
Practiced for health, self-defense or personal development, aikido is a way of physical and moral education which manages to induce a state of good and creates harmonious relationships.
During the training time, the motoric abilities (force, speed, elasticity, coordination, balance) are developing due to the attacks that were being made by one or multiple aggressors.
The specific procedures for aikido are projections and immobilizations, being based less on hits.
