Anywhere that you can find an instructor. Many colleges and universities have a club, so you could check with them for places. Visiting the web sites of the Aikido organizations will help you locate dojo in your area. And don't be afraid to ask around! You might be surprised at the people that practice that you already know!
Japanese Jiujitsu is Aikido's Ancestor. Other styles of Jiujitsu are different, however the Japanese style which is the original style is a root of Aikido. Aikido was created so that you would not destroy your attacker, however jiujitsu is used in combat. The Samurai used techniques that look like Aikido, however it is just a form of Jiujitsu. What Morihei Ueshiba (the founder of Aikido) did was take techniques that he learned from Daito Ryu… Read More
It was developed in Japan,
While it has been traditional in most Martial Art schools to train bare-footed, many schools are adopting new traditions. Typically, Judo schools that train on thicker mats still practice without shoes, and a lot of modern Taekwondo, Karate, and Aikido schools still do not permit shoes on the training floor. However, some schools will permit specialized training shoes that are carried in clean, and worn only for training purposes. The Asian custom of removing your… Read More
Tenshinkai aikido is the branch originally founded in Viet Nam by Sensei Dang Thong Tri .
I'm not sure what your question is, but his books are still available through Amazon, eBay and other similar sources.
Aikido came from Japan where it was created by Morihei Ueshiba.
This question is very complicated to answer because there is a philosophy side and the actual physical side to the art. Morihei Ueshiba created "Aikido" as we know it today. The concept "Aiki" has existed well before Ueshiba. Aiki is a pretty logical concept in the Martial Art World. Ueshiba was definatley a philosopher and he became very spiritual. Ueshiba has a few writings which could be ordered online or maybe a book store. Morihei… Read More
Aikido is a Japanese martial art wihch is developed from jujitsu and makes use of holds and throws.
Historically there is some connection between all of them having shared roots, yet being developed separately in each country of their origin. Taijiquan (T'ai Chi Ch'uan)would be the older of these martials art systems by name, but all Martial Art curricula were influenced by earlier, undocumented sources and have each evolved over time. Taijiquan is believed to have evolved out of the systems practiced among five Chinese families. Chen-style (陳氏) of Chen Wanting (1580–1660) Yang-style… Read More
In Aikido, or any other grappling arts, there is always a way out or an escape. Your job is to make that chance as small as possible as the one doing the throw. Since there is an estimated 3000 combinations of Aikido Waza, you would have to be more specific as to what your trying to get out of. If you're already being thrown, you're going to get thrown. Usually it's your momentum that is… Read More
It depends on the level of the student. Any aikido person will tell you that aikido is better, and most karate students will argue that Karate is. Aikido students learn defense from most attacks, and since it was founded in Japan. Most of the attacks from karate and other Japanese martial arts are covered. There is no better martial art. It depends on what you would like to learn.
I'm pretty sure its in Jakarta.

That would be 10th dan black belt.
There is no way to measure the exact calories which you would burn in an Aikido class. Aikido is designed for almost any person to practice its art. This means if you are an elderly person, you can still practice Aikido unless you have some kind of handicap. The reason that I mention this is because it is not mandatory that you be very athletic. Some classes you will practice "ukemi" which is nothing more… Read More
This is a good question. Controversial because it depends on the Aikidoka. It does not matter if it is Ki Aikido, Aikikai, Yoshinkan and so forth. Aikido is Aikido. We all learn the same techniques, they may vary just slightly, but its still Aiki. For your question, I think I will let you answer it for yourself. Im going to talk about a few things here for you to visualize. Ikkyo or Ikkajo Omote or… Read More
Okay, good question.You can only come to understand the rules of aikido if studying it.
As it applies to the physical aspect of self defense, they each use a different approach to dealing with an attack. Aikido = mostly avoidance and redirection/parry to joint manipulation, throws and projections. Karate = mostly forceful blocks, and damaging strikes with hands and feet. In general terms of fight analysis, an opponent may attack by striking, throwing, or grappling techniques. The defender may likewise strike (or counter-strike), throw, and/or grapple in any order or… Read More
Just like anything else to master, practice! Find a school that teaches Aikido where you live and attend daily lessons. Mastering anything takes years of repetition, so be patient, stick to it, and practice.
Aikido was officially founded in 1942 by Morihei Ueshiba.
1931: first dojo is opened by Morehei Ueshiba (O-Sensei) Aiki-budo is taught. 1942-1952: Aikido is formally used and techniques are perfected. 1948: Aikikai Association is founded to promote Aikido. 1950-1970: Aikido is spread throughout the world. http://www.aikikaicuracao.com/aikicurbiographyosensei.htm
Each ryuha will have different names for the techniques. Whether it's the Aikikai's Ikkyo or the Tomiki style's Ikkajo, it is the same basic technique. But your ability to comunicate with your classmates will improve if you learn the local "dialect". It is helpful (and traditional in many schools) for the instructor to name the techniques after demonstrating them to the class. Of course many students are not in a position to request changes to… Read More
Seagal began his adult life as an aikido instructor in Japan, and is currently a 7th dan in aikido. He is considered the first foreigner to ever own and operate an aikido dojo in Japan. Let me remind you that past 6th dan, you do not get another dan by studing the art. The 7th dan and forth, is presented to the person by it's contribution to the art. Seagal gave a contribution to Aikido… Read More
1. The meaning of Aikido is Ai = Harmony, Ki = the spirit, or source of energy and Do meaning the way.
Kotegeish. From a punch, you tencan out of the way, and grab the uke's wristwith the hand closer to it. Tencan once again leading the uke down and back up again. Slide your hand down to his/her's so that your thumb is in between the knuckles of the attacker's ring finger and pinky and the rest of your fingers wrap around. Twist his wrist/hand down and out away from his body causing him to fail… Read More
Aikido has no age limit, as its founder meant it to be more a spiritual path than a martial art. Morihei Ueshiba saw his Aikido as merely the natural evolution of Bushido; Bushido in Japan's Sengoku (Warring States) period, was concerned with killing as quickly, efficiently and cold bloodedly as humanly possible, Bushdio from the 20th century onward, Ueshiba argued, should be concerned with putting the skills and meditation of martial arts towards creating better… Read More
Aikido was created by Morihei Ueshiba using the techniques aikijujutsu. It is often translated as "The Peaceful Way." It is classified as a grappling art and focuses on using the energy of the individual to create a flow and redirect.
It can develop excellent posture, balance, flexibility, proper breathing and body strength.
please never do any martial art online...if there is such a thing. you can only learn so much by sensei video tape....you need a real life teacher to TEACH you. huh....funny thing teacher. that's what senei means by the way. not master.
It is Morihei Ueshiba.
Aikido Techniques come from ancient Japanese Jiu-Jitsu. Jiu-Jitsu was and still is used in combat. The founder of Aikido, Morihei Ueshiba wanted to make the techniques more flowing and less lethal. The goal of Aikido is to defeat your opponent without injury to you or the attacker. Most of the techniques in Aikido can be damaging and sometimes fatal because you are manipulating small joints in the human body to move an opponent without or… Read More
No, you cannot learn a martial art online or from a book. Even DVD or streaming video cannot really teach you properly. You need to find a good martial arts instructor in order to learn correctly.
You cannot learn a martial art from a video, you need to work with a qualified instructor in person to truly learn an art.
There is the Kailua Aikido Club located at the kokokahi YWCA in Kaneohe. http://www.aikido.youinhawaii.com/aikido_default.aspx There are a ton of Aikido Dojo in Honolulu Check out aikiweb.com and click on dojo search
Aikido is not an ancient art. It was founded in the 1920s by Morihei Ueshiba. It is off of Daito-ryu Aiki-jujutsu. Aikido is often translated as"the Way of harmonious spirit."
An uchi-deshi is a live-in student.
That depends upon why you want to study Aikido. In theory, all styles of Aikido should operate from the same set of basic principles. There are just different ways to study those principles and determine which principles to place emphasis on. Your best bet is to visit several schools and find the one that YOU are most comfortable with.
Uchi-deshi programs usually do not exist in the United States. Depending on the state that you live in, there are rules that buisness have to follow, and people can not live at the buisness because it is not a residence. However, there are some people that come from Japan that visit the Dojo, and the Dojo will just secretly let them sleep in the dojo, take a shower, and all that sort of thing. The… Read More
Better for what? Both can greatly improve one's health through exercise and stretching. Both will develop good martial skills that can improve one's ability to defend one's self.
Nobody knows for sure because Aikido is an art that has roots going back to the Japan Feudal Samurai period. However, O'Sensei, Morihei Ueshiba was the founder of "AikiJujutsu" to "Aikibudo" which was pre-war and then was changed to "Aikido" after world war 2. Ueshiba had private students and it is not clear how early on he was teaching. Ueshiba did train for years in Iwama, Japan.
In Japan you are a white belt until you are black. Some Dojo out of Japan still follow that system however that's up to the Sensei. The multi color ranking system did not come from Japan, I believe the US started that but don't quote me on that one. Also in Japan they had purple belts. If you were not an adult they would not promote you to black, so you wore a purple until… Read More
Aikido was designed so that both the attacker/enemy and the person defending do not get hurt during a conflict. Aikido is a way to resolve conflict as soft and peaceful as possible. Just like any art, once the student knows the art, they also have control over how much they apply a control or lock on a person. Many of the Aikido techniques can be deadly however they are not practiced that way. The level… Read More
From starting aikido to getting a 5th dan it took my instructor around 35 years including four trips to Tokyo and two trips a month to a 8th dan aikido instructor in the capital.
There is no competition in Aïkido. Aïkido is a defensive Martial Art, where there is no "opponents" but "partners". Some competitions were created in Japan. But were not successful.
Stephen Seagal is a Aikido master.
I belong to a Yoshinkan Dojo so I will be more than happy to answer your question. Yoshinkan Aikido was founded by Gozo Shioda in 1955. Shioda was a student under the founder of the Art, Morihei Ueshiba. Shioda took Aikido and shortened the techniques to make them more practicle for police, law enforcment, and military in which Shioda taught all of who I just mentioned. Yoshinkan is big on movements and usually use "smaller… Read More
Of course a beginner can learn at Aikido of Phoenix. Any beginner can learn at any Dojo. They may have some classes that are for advanced Aikidoka however, you shouldn't have any problems at all fitting in.
If you are wanting to learn Aikido on the Internet then I would search youtube and other video sharing sources like that. You can also purchase DVD's from Blackbelt Magazine and many many other sources. Also, I highly recommend that you visit a Dojo or somewhere that practices Aikido because getting that kind of experience is very valuable. You wont be able to do the art correctly unless you go to a Dojo.
Nothing. You should approach it with an open mind and no preconceived ideas. Trust your instructor to teach in the best method available.
Judo would be closely related to Aikido.
Aikido means the way of peace and harmony and teaches grappling, throwing, chokes, and other techniques from a Omoto kyo religious perspective. The perspective the founder of this art changed to.
A Aikido uniform is called Agi
Seagal Sensei has opened many Aikido dojo. He mostly will do special seminars rather than teach an everyday Aikido class. After he came from Japan he began his career in Acting. Since then, he does not practice Aikido or teach as much as he use to. He may also have private lessons or a private dojo but generally not open to the public.
Austrailia has some great Aikido classes in Sydney I highly recommend this first link. Hope this helps.

No, it is a Martial Art focused on defence, and harmony with your attacker. While it does let you get the upper hand over your opponent, most of the techniques learned are arm locks/ breaks, or throws. You could use the knowledge from Aikido to kill someone, but there are no 'killing moves' taught in Aikido.
Ueshiba Morihei founded traditional Aikido. There are many variations of Aikido developed from Traditional Aikido, such as Yoshinkan Aikido, Shodokan Aikido, Combat Aikido, etc.
This question can be interpreted in different ways. As a fighting tool. Speaking in strictly technical terms, it is very effective at stopping all brainless charging. If a man or woman just charges at them brainlessly, the proverbial "bull rush" tackle attempt, an expert Aikidoka will send them flying. Nine times out of 10 I can almost guarantee it. The majority of street encounters always involve agression by untrained martial artists, so in that respect… Read More
Assuming you are that coordinated and sensitive to body movement, moving with their movement "going with it." The moment you feel that throw, or trip, you move in that direction, that way YOU control the momentum, not them. If you resist, they will only use that force against you, if you go with it, you can use the combined momentum to help you escape.
Morihei Ueshiba (O Sensei) is considered the founder of modern day Aikido, and developed the art in the 1920s from a combination of philosophical and martial studies, primarily Daito-ryu Aiki-jujutsu.
There are many dojo which may let you do this. Our Dojo is located in Anaheim, CA. You could use aikiweb.com as a source to search for places to train then obviously you would have to inquire. You must find a good school, and a good teacher who values Aikido more than money.
In my opinion, if their was someone performing karate and someone performing aikido and they were both equally as good as each other, aikido would win. It would win because karate gives a lot of punches or kicks that are easy to catch and then get thrown onto the ground. I believe that it will be more dependent on the skill of the practitioners then the art. There are so many variables that it would… Read More
Both Martial Arts come from Japan. Inventor of Aikido: Morihei Ueshiba Judo: Jigoro Kano.
Aikido came from Daito Ryu JiuJitsu, so Jiujitsu is what came first.
Sensei Jack Moon founded Combat Aikido. It is an eclectic self defense system that combines principles and techniques from Aikido, Karate, Judo, Jujitsu, Boxing, Krav Maga, Ground Fighting and other lesser known martial arts. Traditional Aikido practitioners often refer to Combat Aikido as "ramped up Aikido" because it employs alot more strikes and kicks than the traditional style. The Combat Aikido Association headquarters is located in Rutledge, Georgia.
Harry Ishisaka Sensei from the Orange County Aikikai in California.
To become a wealthy aikidoka (aikido practitioner), you would need years of experience, possibly a few dojos, many students, publishing deals, and disregard that many Aikido dojos are configured as non-profits because some philosophical aspects of Aikido are not necessarily compatible with capitalism.
Morihei Ueshiba, a Japanese martial artist who descended from a minor Samurai clan. The reason he developed Aikido, had to do with his experiences growing up. During the Edo and Meiji periods of Japanese history, there was a vicious persecution of the Samurai, it was especially intense during the Meiji period, which saw many Samurai hunted down and killed by the Shinsen gumi, very few swordsmen and Samurai clans, survived their depredations. The styles of… Read More
COMBAT AIKIDO is an eclectic self defense system developed by SENSEI JACK MOON. It was derived from a variety of martial arts. COMBAT AIKIDO's philosophy emphasizes threat neutralization, simultaneous defensive & offensive maneuvers and endurance. Techniques generally focus on training students in conditions approximating scenarios. COMBAT AIKIDO maneuvers aim to neutralize an attack and facilitate rapid and safe escape. COMBAT AIKIDO utilizes over 50 training drills to increase endurance, to increase awareness, to increase ability… Read More
Any martial art when practiced well can be applied in a fight, the outcome is not based upon the style used but the skill of the practitioner and the opponent. No style is better than another, it is the discipline and skill that make the art effective in defense.

Both of these arts were created for different purposes by different people. Both arts focus on making an individual healthier and a better person. They require dedication and a lot of time to become proficient. Karate focuses on striking while Aikido focuses more on joint manipulation considering Aikido comes from Daito Ryu Jujutsu. It depends on what the student wants to get out of an art. ---------------------------------------------- What is above is absolutly correct. Actually, there… Read More
No. Korea does have a similar martial art, but Aikido is Japanese.
Hapkido and Aikido are entirely different martial arts. As far as belts, these are entirely dependent on the dojo or school of each art and would be difficult to standardize.
Depending on how you view what "Aikido" actually is, it is a Martial Art, it is a way of life, and it also contains spiritual things in it as well. Doing physical techniques requires a partner. People actually do "Aikido" on a daily basis, they just dont know it. Many of every day things that people do like drive a car, open doors, and drinking from a glass are movements which are found in Aikido… Read More

合気道 (aikido) is a Japanese form of Martial Arts.
Yoshinkai/Yoshinkan Aikido Belt colors can vary from Dojo to Dojo. In Japan, you are a white belt until you are a black belt. The color system is American/European, not Japanese. So there really is not a specific answer to your question. Each belt color represents a "Kyu" or "Dan" rank. A "Kyu" rank is any rank which is below a black belt. The first level of the black belt rank is Shodan, which is obviously… Read More
The highest degree or rank is 10th Dan which is a 10th degree blackbelt. Most people will never reach this level because it is considered to be the rank of the founder or creater of the art or system. It is also common that you can only promote only 2 levels below your own rank.
Traditional Aikido uses the bokken "wooden sword" and a Jo "short version of a bo or staff". Originally, many of the Aikido techniques simulate the sword. The basic Aikido stance is the same stance that the samurai used while holding a sword, the hand positioning is also the same in a basic stance. Generally, weapons are not mandatory in Aikido and not all Sensei know bokken/Jo techniques. It is just a good piece of history… Read More
The exact date of when it was founded is not clearly known. Some will claim a specific date however nobody knows for sure. Generally, Morihei Ueshiba trained in martial arts for many years. Aikido and Ancient Japanese Jiu-Jitsu go almost hand in hand. Japanese Jiu-Jitsu is considered the Grandfather of Aikido. Many of the techniques involve manipulation of joints to move a bigger person without the use of strength. Aikido is believed to have been… Read More
No Taekwondo is a respect sport while aikido is a sport which is a last man standing.
Dissemination of aikido actually represents a departure from the Founder's approach in favor of the use of the opponents speed and stgrengh to fight againts him. Aikido was achieved by the master Morihei Ueshiba. In Aikido, the dynamic sphere is the center where Dissemination of aikido became where the student uses the opp0ments movements to defeat it or them. It also means to win without damaging the other guy in the combat unlles it is… Read More
Aikido began when a Japanese man now reffered to as O Sensei (great teacher) took Ju Jit Su. He thought "what if there was a way to defend oneself without hurting the opponent. He took some Ju Jit Su techniques, and some of his own and invented a way to keep out of harms way. While not having to severly hurt your opponent. Therefore he created Aikido. Which, in Japan, means harmonzing with energy. This… Read More

I am not sure exactly which "Devon" you are asking about however, to answer your question simply. Use the "Dojo Search" option listed on Aikiweb.com
There are different forms of Aikido, and rules and techniques are different for each. This is a difficult question to answer for even a single form as this could take a small book to answer.
Nobody knows the exact age of how old Ueshiba was when he "created" Aikido. The term "Aikido" became the official name of the art in 1942 but was called Aikibudo prior to that time. Ueshiba was said to have developed the art in between the 1920's and 30's. That would put his age in the 30's to 40's. He was a very devout student of martial arts and took his time developing Aikido.
Bear in mind that any legitimate system of Martial Art, and any good school is going to be beneficial to a person regardless of age, gender, size, or even physical abilities. Some methods of physical combat focus on aspects that might prove to be more challenging at first, or might need a greater degree of adjustments to fit a person who is tall, large, or physically challenged. However, being "athletically talented" should not be an… Read More
You would wear a left handed golf, this reduces the pressure from your top hand.
There is no specific time. Aikido is self paced and some people will promote faster than others. Generally, once you reach a black belt rank, there becomes time restrictions before you can promote to the next Dan ranking. I know an Aikido Sensei who has over 40 years of Aikido experience, and he is a 6th Dan. Most people have a misconception of rank. Again, generally speaking, once you reach 3rd Dan, there is no… Read More
Yes. The Shin Shin Toitsu form of Aikido does not have moves that allow you to hit, kick, block, strike, or punch, but Grandmaster Koichi Tohei (now retired) often put on demonstrations in the US as a part of martial arts demonstrations. He was successful many times (no failures known) of defending himself against as many as 4 attackers at a time, all masters in their particular martial art. There are other forms of Aikido… Read More
In the mind of the attacker. Aikido ("the way of harmonious energy") is a Martial Art discipline of avoidance and redirection using the opponent's aggression against himself. The aikidoka does not seek to fight, nor beat someone up, but rather to use natural forces, coordinated with the attacker's energy to assist the attacker in defeating himself. Aikido is practiced in a dojo (school), and is taught by a sensei (teacher), and can be used in… Read More
Aikido is a martial arts form. The word is a mash-up of the japanese words ai, ki and do. Ai means love, harmony and unit, as in moving as one. Ki means force, power and can be interpreted as life-energy. Do means path or in an easier form, a way of training. Aikido basically means ''The path to harmonic life-energy''
They're both relativivaly the same. They both originated from Aiki-Ju-Jitsu and broke off into two main branches, Aikido and Jujitsu, which split into smaller branches. For example Aikido now has many other forms such as Shudokan. My dojo had a ju-jitsu seminar and the only diference is ju-jitsu is more aggresive. One isn't more effective than the other.
That depends on how you are going to define better. Both are martical arts with long history. Aikido is a grappling art and Kung Fu is a striking art.
