Aikido is a Japanese Martial Art based on the principles of circular motion and non-resistance against an opponent's force, so that anyone can use it with the least amount of physical force. Etiquette and discipline are required and observed during practice. Sweatpants and sweatshirts are acceptable for beginners.
