Aikido is a defensive, non competitive martial art involving little to no kicking or punching techniques. Instead a skilled practioner redirects an opponents energy (or ki) to throw or immobilise them.

In this shot, at approximatley 55kg, Sensei Joe is about half the weight of Sensei Martin.

Yoshinkan Aikido is known as one of the more “harder” styles of Aikido.
