Huron Valley Aikika
Aikido is a modern Japanese martial art that was developed early in the last century by Morihei Ueshiba (1883-1969). In Japanese, Aikido means "the way of harmony with the force and principle of nature." Aikido is derived from Japan's traditional budo ("martial way"), but is more than just a set of techniques for fighting or self-defense. It is a path where the keen edge of martial art is used as a "Way" to personal growth. There are no competitions in Aikido, which follows its philosophy of harmony, and also preserves the original martial effectiveness of its techniques. Because winning and losing are never a concern, trainees are free to dedicate their efforts to the mutual goal of self-development, training and progressing at their own pace. Regular practice produces not only improved fitness, but a sense of well-being and self-confidence that extends to daily life.
