Aikido Fun Facts

Aikido (合気道 aikidō) is performed by blending with the way the attacker moves, using the force of the attack rather than coming against it. This is achieved by using the attackers “ki” against them. This takes very little physical strength, as the aikidōka (person who does aikido) uses the force of the attacker’s own momentum using stepping and turning movements. The techniques are completed with many different throws or joint locks which can be combined with different defenses. Aikido is one of many grappling arts.

There are many kinds of fact that make aikido popular :

  1. In some areas, Japanese police officers are required to hold at least a Shodan (black belt) in Aikido.
  2. Aikido is the only martial art allowed in the U.S. federal prison system.
  3. Morihei Ueshiba, founder of Aikido, once pinned a Sumo wrestler using only a single finger.
  4. Aikido was among the first martial arts freed from the ban imposed on their practice by the US government after World War II.
  5. The well-known actor Steven Seagal is a 7th degree black belt in Aikido.
  6. Your arm is stronger when you relax it.
