General Class - All Levels at Heart of San Francisco Aikido
About this class
Aikido is an art of conflict resolution and fosters harmony with oneself, others and the world. Instead of meeting force with force, they use strategies to unite opposing forces. One way is to join them together into a spiral motion. Aikido is characterized by graceful spirals movement. The term Aikido is comprised of three Japanese words: ai (love, harmony), ki (energy, spirit) and do (path, way). It is translated in many ways, including "The Art of Peace" and "The Way of Harmony with Life-Energy." As an art of non-violent conflict resolution, Aikido helps develop discipline, awareness and personal growth. Aikido was created in Japan by Morihei Ueshiba, or O'Sensei, who lived from 1883 to 1969.
