Aikido is a purely defensive Japanese martial art. One does not attack or counter attack; one blends with the attacker in order to make one fluid motion. This allows the defender firstly to control the attacker and secondly to apply an Aikido technique: either a projection (throw) or immobilisation (locking/pinning move).
As one studies Aikido, one understands that Aikido is not purely a form of self defence; it is about self discipline and self control.
Aikido is a true skill and takes a lifetime to master.
The translation of Aikido out of the Japanese is confusing. Ai-Ki-Do equates to Harmony-Spirit-Way or Path. A simple definition would be The Way of Spirit through Harmony.
