Aikido Dojo Japanese
AIKIDO dojos, schools, gyms, lessons in Japan - About Aikido:
Aikido is sometimes translated as "the Way of unifying life energy" or as "the Way of harmonious spirit." Aikido is a Japanese martial art and was created in the 1920's by Japanese martial artist Morihei Ueshiba. Aikido can be defined as a grappling art performed by using the motion of the attacker against themselves and redirecting the energy of the attack rather than opposing it. Some aikido martial artists see aikido in a metaphorical manner, seeing a connection between aikido techniques and other methods for conflict resolution in everyday life. From a philosophical standpoint, aikido can be interpreted by setting defined variables of attack and then using that opposing force against someone. Most aikido dojos use only white and black belts to identify rank, but some use various belt colors. Testing requirements and grading vary for each dojo. A certain grade in one dojo is not always comparable or interchangeable with the grade issued by a different dojo.
