Aikido is a Japanese martial art often translated "way of harmony". Aikido techniques blend with the movement of an attacker, in order to unbalance and then throw or restrain them without relying on brute force. Aikido was developed by Morihei Ueshiba (1883-1969), combining traditional jujutsu and weapons arts with a philosophy of non-violence. Participants can expect to learn and recieve throws and pins largely in place of punches and kicks, and will develop the means to neutralise instead of destroy an opponent.
