Information in English



Aikido is a modern and peaceful martial art, developed from the techniques of the Japanese samurai. Fundamental in Aikido is, that aggression directed to yourself can be guided/controlled instead of using lethal force. This principle is found in the techniques to end the attack by using the attackers own energy and momentum.

Aikido techniques can be recognized by their harmonious, often circular or spiraled movements. The right timing and correct body movement provides the opportunity to take over your opponent’s attack, taking his balance, and immobilizing your opponent.
