Aikido is a traditional and non-violent Japanese martial art, founded by O sensei Ueshiba Morihei (1883-1969).
Practiced without competition, his teaching is based on principles of balance of energies and respect of the partner. It is aimed at men and women, with no age limit or special preparation.

The practitioner studies the basic principles of martial arts: movements, dodging, seizures, distances. He gradually tackles the work with bare hands (aikitaijustu) techniques, projections and also the work of weapons (aikijo and aikiken) within the framework of the dojo.
