Game in Brief:
The basic principle of Aikido is “Do not fight force with force”. It is a sport that is not so rough as Judo or Karate. Aikido is excellent as mental training or as a fitness sport, and has become especially popular with women and senior citizens. It is more about redirecting or reflecting the opponents’ energy and momentum towards him.
- In this martial art, along with self-defence it equally emphasises on preventing injuries to the attacker. It preaches that revenge doesn’t work and forgiveness is better.
- Aikido training is mental as well as physical, emphasizing the ability to relax the mind and body even under the stress of dangerous situations. Destressing is very important in life and this game rightly preaches it.
