London Aikikai - Traditional Aikido in London
Welcome to the Home of Traditional Aikido in London - London Aikikai (est. 1967)
Aikido is a modern, non-violent, non-aggressive Japanese martial art which was developed early in the twentieth century by Morihei Ueshiba (1883-1969). In Japanese, aikido means "the Way of harmony with the force and principle of nature." Aikido is derived from Japan's traditional budo (the Way of martial arts), yet goes beyond the realm of budo; it is a path where the keen edge of martial art is used as a "Way" to spiritual growth.
