The real Budo is love toward protecting (giving protection) of all beings in a spirit of reconciliation. “Reconciliation" (to reach a consensus, rapprochement) is to allow everyone to realize his mission.


I would like the wise and delicate in its essence people to hearken unto the voice of Aikido. Not to correct others but to rectify themselves - their own mind and way of thinking. This is Aikido.


Aikido - this is not resistance. Since it is not resisted, it has always won.


Since the word "ai" (harmony) is like the word "ai" (love) I decided to call my original "Budo" Aikido, although the word "aiki" is an ancient. The word that was used by warriors in the past is completely different from the one I use.


"Aiki" is not a technique which to use to fight the enemy and to win. This is the Path (approach) to make peace with the world and to build with other human beings one family.


The secret of Aikido lies on harmonizing oneself with the movement of the world and to bring ourselves to agree with the world itself. The one who has gained the secret of Aikido has the world in himself and can say, "I am the world."


Those who tend to create turmoil and conflicts would be defeated in the very beginning.


I've never been defeated, as has been quick the attack enemy. But this has been not because my attack has been proved faster than that of enemy. This is not question of the velocity (speed) in this case. The battle has done over before it begins.


When an enemy tries to fight with me, with my world, he should break (destroy) the harmony of the world. Therefore, the moment in which he decides to fight me, he is already defeated. There is no measure for the time - fast or slow.


Those who do not agree by the fact would not be in harmony with the world. Their Budo is Budo of the destruction. This is not creative Budo.

What is Aikido?


Aikido is a Japanese martial art invented and developed at the beginning of the XXth century by Morihei Ueshiba \1883-1969\. He developed and synthesized it out of various martial arts, which he studied in his youth.

Many of the arts and techniques in Aikido actually date from more than 700 years ago. Its practical experience in these arts is one of the richest.

Aikido is one of the most complex and sophisticated martial arts - an effective doctrine for development, integration, and harmonization of all human strength. The methods of Aikido give the opportunity for development and perfection of individual's physical, mental and spiritual values. Aikido is a means of reconciliation, of giving protection, of self-perfection, rather than a means of acquiring physical and technical superiority over other human beings. It is a path - lifestyle and self-development, rather than a way of achieving one's goals of life through attack. It is self-defense only in super extreme situations, when one's life is in danger, instead of attack and aggression.

The word Aikido itself means method or way \DO\ for co-ordination and harmony \AI\, with the energy of mind \Ki\. Therefore, the meaning of the word Aikido is: a way by which co-ordination and harmony between physical and mental energy is achieved.

Aikido is not a sport, as there are no competitions in it, only seminars and public demonstrations. It can be practiced by everyone, regardless of his or her age and sex. That's why it is a unique system for the development of an individual.
