Aikido is a Japanese martial art developed by Morihei Ueshiba. Aikido is often translated as "the Way of unifying (with) life energy" or as "the Way of harmonious spirit." Ueshiba's goal was to create a martial art that practitioners could use to defend themselves while at the same time protecting their attacker from injury. Aikido is considered a "soft" style and is performed by blending with the motion of the attacker and redirecting the force of the attack rather than opposing it head-on. This requires very little physical strength, as the aikidōka (aikido practitioner) "leads" the attacker's momentum using entering and turning movements. The techniques are completed with various throws or joint locks.
