What is aikido?：
First of all, do you know Aikido? Aikido is a modern martial art founded by Morihei Ueshiba (1883-1969, hereafter referred to as "the Founder"). The Founder developed a new martial arts based on his depth knowledge of various martial arts and mastery of advanced fighting techniques, and found in it a revolutionary spirituality and universal philosophy. In other words, the Founder realized that the true goal of Aikido training is not to fight, but to improve one's mind and body according to the rules of nature, and to deepen cooperation and mutual understanding among people around the world. In accordance with this core principle, Aikido techniques are performed by blending into the opponent's movements and redirecting the force of the attack. Aikido has no competitions or matches. And today, Aikido is practiced in more than 140 countries.
