Saturday,18:30 - 19:00 at Meiji

More than a non-violent fighting art, Aikido is a budo – a way of life – derived from the principles of the martial arts. It was founded by Morihei Ueshiba-sensei who, after long years of study of samurai fighting techniques and philosophies Omoto kyo and Koshinto, developed his own art of self-defense and refined it to make it incredibly effective. The name Aikido is composed of three parts: ai – meaning harmony, unity or agreement, ki – meaning nature or universal energy, and do – meaning the way.

The demonstration will take place on the Matsuri stage and the initiation in the Meiji room.
