Aikido is a Japanese martial art whose techniques seek to redirect the energy and power of an attacker. It is a modern martial art derived from the hand-to-hand fighting techniques of the Samurai in ancient Japan. Aikido is noncompetitive and nonviolent. Cooperation and harmony are more important than aggression. Aikido London offers a safe and relaxed atmosphere for new and experienced students to learn and grow.
