"To win one hundred victories in one hundred battles is not the highest skill. To subdue the enemy without fighting is the highest skill." -- Sun-Tzu, from The Art of War
Why Aikido is different.
Unlike the striking and kicking martial arts, the aim of Aikido is not to injure or kill an opponent. Instead, Aikido teaches how to resolve conflict as safely as possible. Aikido uses graceful but powerful locks, throws and pins that quickly immobilize an attacker without causing permanent injury. This is why Aikido is called the Art of Nonresistance or The Non Fighting Art.
During an Aikido class, students practice techniques for blending with and neutralizing punches, grabs, and assaults. The training develops balance, flexibility, coordination, and self confidence in the face of an attack.
The ultimate goal of Aikido training is to master a calm and confident approach to conflict--a courageous and compassionate spirit that wholeheartedly confronts the challenges and difficulties of life.
