Aikido consists of hand and body techniques (taijutsu), which are used along with strikes to unbalance an opponent in order to throw or immobilise them with a lock.
Aikido has its roots in the ancient warrior arts of Japan, particularly kenjutsu, jojutsu and ju-jutsu. The techniques rely on skill and the use of the opponent’s force against them, rather than brute strength. This means anyone can do aikido regardless of shape, size or gender.
