Aikido is Budo, a non-competitive art based on the philosophy and martial arts of the Japanese Samurai. It is an excellent fitness activity, effective self-defense, and a way of improving our relationships with others. Aikido helps to teach us not to defeat others, but to learn to control ourselves.
