Aikido encompasses Japanese martial arts. It is an efficient discipline for the development and use of both physical and spiritual strength in men and women. The goal of Aikido is the convergence of body, technique and spirit into one, as founder Morihei Ueshiba explained: The true way of martial arts is not to neutralize the enemy, but rather direct him in such a way that he voluntarily abandons his hostile spirit. The purpose is to develop good aesthetics, sobriety, dynamism, simplicity, elegance and serenity. At the same time, students are trained to develop skills that allow them to interact more in harmony and solidarity, for their own benefit and for the different groups where they participate.
