Aikido is a celebration of the bonding of heaven, earth, and humankind.
It is all that is true good and beautiful.

-Morihei Ueshiba

Aikido is a non-violent martial art founded by Master Morihei Ueshiba (1883-1969). It provides excellent physical and mental conditioning, which enable a person under attack to assume control of their situation without contributing to the creation of violence. A beautiful and enlivening art, Aikido is a philosophy with physical expression. The unification of mind, body, and spirit creates a clarity and calmness which transfers to daily life.

"The Art of Peace does not rely on weapons or brute force to succeed; instead we put ourselves in tune with the universe, maintain peace in our own realms, nurture life, and prevent death and destruction. The true meaning of the term samurai is one who serves and adheres to the power of love."

-Morihei Ueshiba
