  • 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. Aikido Offers Many Benefits People who begin training in the martial art Aikido find many benefits: Self-defense Exercise Art Spirituality Philosophy Conflict Resolution Healing Meditation Aikido is a discipline for mental, physical, and spiritual growth.
