Daily Images | Aikido

Daily Images – Aikido is a Japanese martial art developed by Morihei Ueshiba as a combination of his martial studies, philosophy, and religious beliefs. Aikido is often translated as “the Way of harmonious spirit.” Ueshiba’s goal was to create an art that practitioners could use to defend themselves while also protecting their attacker from injury.

Aikido is performed by using the motion of the attacker and redirecting the force of the attack rather than opposing it head-on. This requires very little physical strength, as the aikido practitioner “leads” the attacker’s momentum. The techniques are completed with various throws or joint locks.
