Aikido is a dynamic Japanese martial art where practitioners defend themselves whilst also protecting their attacker from injury. It literally means:
Aikido is performed by blending with the motion of the attacker and redirecting the force of the attack rather than opposing it head-on, and completing with a joint lock (immobilisation) or a throw.
