Aikido is a Japanese martial art that is based on combat to confront one or more adversaries, who can be unarmed or armed. It is about uniting physical and mental energies and harmonizing the individual with the rest of the universe to achieve comprehensive development.

It serves as self-defense if applied appropriately at the right times, and although it has a sporting part, it is an activity that tries to improve individuals physiologically.

So, if you are thinking about signing up for classes in this discipline, in addition to having the material to practice aikido, it is important that you know some aspects such as what aikido is and what it is for.

Aikido philosophy

Aikido is a very complete martial art, since in addition to being useful to defend oneself in case of aggression, it allows the person to develop from different points of view such as physical, energetic or mental.

The name is made up of the three syllables AI-KI-DO and each one of them tries to communicate something different.

  • AI means union or harmony, achieving a relationship between all parts of the individual.
  • KI refers to energy or spirit, to trying to learn to channel the forces within us.
  • DO tries to convey the path to follow, that is, the personal commitment that a person has when deciding to practice this sport.
