Morihei Ueshiba envisioned a style that could be both non-aggressive and still effective in a multitude of self-defense situations. From that vision came the art of aikido. As a student, you will be taught to respect the body of your opponent. The techniques should never cause permanent damage. The pain you inflict will be momentary. The aikido student is taught to search for eternal harmony. But this training has no end, for aikidoists believe perfection of character is never complete.

A very hand reference to Aikido techniques, based in Seidokan School of Aikido.
