About Aikido

Aikido is known as the art of peace, and a practitioner strives to protect oneself, others, and even the opponent by controlling the three centers of the encounter. We learn the art of taking balance, which doesn't require strength but relies on flexibility and precise movement. Kodokan Aikido at Virginia Tech is member of the Aikikai Foundation, as a part of Kodokan Aikido, Okazaki Dojo under Tadamitsu Tanaka Shihan, 7th Dan.
