Special Announcement

On 01 April 2011, Aikikai Singapore organised a Combined Training  to do our part to raise funds for disaster victims in Japan. It was very successful with more than 50 members who donated generously to this good cause. The collection of well over $2,000 was handed over to the Singapore Red Cross for their ongoing dispatch of help to the affected areas in Japan.

The Management Committee sincerely thanks all members/donors for their generosity and compassion for this worthy cause and also their support towards Aikikai Singapore to participate in this combined training. We also appreciate the warm message delivered to us by our Japanese Aikido members.

Last but not least, special thanks to John Tee Sensei for sponsoring the dinner and drinks for this combined training-cum-fundraising event.

What is Aikido?

Aikido(�Ϛ�?�������ɤ�, also written as �Ϛݵ�:�������ɤ�) is a gendai budo, a modern Japanese martial art, developed by Morihei Ueshiba. The art consists of striking, body throw and joint locking techniques and is known for its fluidity and blending with an attacker, rather than meeting force with force.

The word aikido is formed of three Japanese characters,

�� - ai - joining
�� - ki - spirit
�� - do - way

Disarming an attacker using a tachi-dori ("sword-taking") technique.Aiki is a martial arts principle or tactic. It typically describes an idea of oneness or blending in the midst of combat. This principle finds expressions in such lethal concepts as ai-uchi (ai-uchi), meaning "mutual strike/kill", but in aikido it generally describes the more elevated notion of blending rather than clashing. Emphasis is upon joining with the rhythm and intent of the opponent in order to find the optimal position and timing with which to apply the technique.

The techniques of aikido can, when applied judiciously, divert or immobilize rather than damage or kill. As a result, some consider aikido to be a practical symbol of meeting aggression (physical, verbal, etc.) with an effective but merciful response, and finding harmony in conflict. Ueshiba declared, "To control aggression without inflicting injury is the Art of Peace."
