Ki Society Aikido Ages 16 & up Aikido is a martial art that has its roots in Samurai teachings. It is a circular art that uses joint locks to subdue or throws to project an opponent. Aikido uses the attacker’s energy and strength to our advantage. The correct application of Aikido techniques takes very little physical strength. Our style has a strong emphasis on the mental aspects of self defense. We practice relaxation in times of stress and non-competitive outcomes of conflicts.
