Aikido is based on the principle of non-conflict. In Aikido, one uses powerful circular movements to blend with an opponent’s attact and redirect the attack into a throw or immobilization, bringing the conflict to a peaceful resolution. Aikido helps develop one’s flexibility, stability, and coordination of body and mind.
