Aikido
Lesson One

Aikido

Martial Arts Discipline

Aikido is a twisting, throwing, takedown style like Judo, Hapkido, and Shuai Jiao which uses the opponent's own momentum against them. It is similar to a grappling, ground-fighting style like Sambo and Jiu Jitsu in its use of pressure points on vital nerve centers.
Competition
No direct contest between practitioners is possible in Ueshiba's original form. Tomiki Aikido, developed by Ueshida's student Tomoiki Kenji, allows practitioners to compete by alternately attacking each other with wooden or rubber weapons. The focus is on avoiding and disarming, not on the weapon attack itself as it is in styles such as Kendo, Kali, and Iaido.
There is a martial art style for all types of people and something for us all to take away from each martial art style. Even as we mix and choose, it is important to remember their origins.



With the rise in popularity of Mixed Martial Arts, it may be time again to remind ourselves of the different types of martial arts and their origins. There was a time when Americans called all martial arts Karate (Japanese) even though the most famous martial artist, Bruce Lee, practiced Kung Fu (Chinese). These remain popular, but today share the spotlight with: Tae Kwon Do (Korean), Eskrima (Filipino), Sambo (Russian), Krav Maga (Israeli), Capoeira (Brazilian), Judo (Japanese), Tai Chi (Chinese), and Muay Thai.
The way of harmonizing energy, Aikido in Japanese, is a fascinating style because it incorporates techniques from some of these styles and acts as a counterpoint to others.
Defensive
Aikido differs from the standing, striking style of Tae Kwon Do, Karate, Kung Fu, Krav Maga, and Kickboxing. It is a low-impact, meditative style of self-development like Tai Chi, Chi Gong, and Baguazhang. There are no offensive moves. Said Morihei Ueshiba, the founder, in 14th century Japan, "To injure an opponent is to injure yourself."
