Welcome to Aikido-Swabia in Gundremmingen!
What is the meaning of Aikido?
Ai - means harmony. In Aikido the particular emphasis is placed on the harmonization of the movement with the training partner. That is the way the training partners bring the motions into accordance with each other.
Ki - means power. Not the physical strength is meant here, but the energy in the inside, which uprises from breathing, concentration and a stable middle.
Do - the way. The practise of Aikido means to bring body and mind in accordance with the laws of nature. This implies to take a pathway, which can be treaded into old age.
