We ceaselessly pray that fights should not occur. For this reason we strictly prohibit matches in Aikido. Aikido's spirit is that of loving attack and that of peaceful reconciliation. In this aim we bind and unite the opponents with the will power of love. By love we are able to purify others.
Morihei Ueshiba

 AIKIDO is an authentic Japanese martial art, a modern Budo that is also a subtle system of personal development. Aikido comprises physical and spiritual dimensions and was founded by Morihei Ueshiba after he had mastered many traditional arts and engaged in profound spiritual training.
