  • Description - Aikido Heart-San Francisco

    The San Francisco Chronicle Datebook included a wonderful article about Aikido and our dojo written by Kenneth Baker, a member of our dojo for many years. Read the article and share the link with others. The Guiding Principle of Aikido is Harmony Aikido is a modern martial art founded in the last century by Morihei Ueshiba O-Sensei. It is non-violent and strives to achieve harmony with nature, others, and oneself. The word Aikido consists of three Japanese words that can be translated as "path to spiritual harmony.' Ai - Harmony or Unity Ki - Spirit Energy or Life Energy Do - Path or Way Rather than fighting, Aikido challenges us to meet the energy of an attack with relaxation and a sense of center. Using fluid, spiral movements, we turn around an attacker's energy so that it defeats itself.
