Have you ever heard people talk about aikido and wondered what it’s all about? Aikido is different from most martial arts in that it’s a purely defensive style. There are no attacks or competition, and the objective is to flow with the attacker’s energy in order to defend yourself. Because this art does not rely on physical strength, it is a wonderful method of self-defense for all ages and body types. This video demonstrates several key fundamentals of aikido in under 5 minutes. Discussion includes fundamental concepts such as energy flow, getting off the line of attack, timing, balance breaks, and more. Great for anyone interested in aikido or other martial arts, from beginners on up.
