Aikido dojo 

Aikido is a modern self-defence and budo sport based on old Japanese martial arts. There are no competitions in aikido, and a competitive spirit is not part of the training or nature of this sport.

Aikido is practised in a dojo with a tatami covered floor. You do aikido in your bare feet. The range of aikido techniques can be roughly divided into locking and throwing ones. The techniques are used in different attack forms consisting of grips, strikes, kicks and their combinations. The defender exploits the attacker's force, which is directed in the selected direction without damaging the attacker. Weapons are also used in aikido: a wooden knife (tanto), a wooden sword (bokken) and a long wooden stick (jo).

Aikido is suitable for active people of all ages and sizes. In addition to sport-specific skills, aikido develops general fitness, balance, coordination and flexibility.
