Although aikido is a relatively recent innovation within the world of
martial arts, it is heir to a rich cultural and philosophical
background. Aikido was created in Japan by Morihei Ueshiba
(1883-1969). Before creating aikido, Ueshiba trained extensively in
several varieties of jujitsu, as well as sword and spear fighting.
Ueshiba also immersed himself in religious studies and developed an
ideology devoted to universal socio-political harmony. Incorporating
these principles into his martial art, Ueshiba developed many aspects
of aikido in concert with his philosophical and religious ideology.

moving, we are escaping an attacker’s energy and directing it back
towards him. Read More HERE
