The technical basis of Aikido is largely derived from O’Sensei Ueshiba’s mastery of the Daito Ryu, a Aiki-jujitsu school, with the weapons system largely developed from O’Sensei’s observation of many different koryu.
Aikido includes the study of tai-jutsu (body art) and the study of aikido weapons the ken (sword) and jo (staff). Students are taught the body art and weapons systems in such a way that each field of study informs the other and leads to improved technique in all areas.
The techniques of Aikido consist largely of strikes (atemi) throws and pins which are effected by blending with the attackers energy.
