Aikido is one of the most innovative and adapting of the modern day martial arts. With its roots based in kenso and jujutsu, Aikido is well versed as an art and means for self defense. The techniques within the art are both subtle and dynamic- each lending a hand in creating an axis of power exclusive to Aikido. The examples in the DVD focus on the movements, connection and blending on both the uke and nage role. Movement can be simple or it can be dynamic...each are equally effective.
