The Japanese martial art of Aikido is a comprehensive system of throwing, joint/locking, striking and pinning techniques, coupled with training in traditional Japanese weapons.
For the young Aikido students there learning is taken very slowly with attention to safety for all the students. The learning of basic exercises and blending movements, which will lead to techniques are key to the training. The saying slow is smooth and smooth is fast is a focus point as well as self control. Aikido is known as the way of peace.
