When an opponent comes forward, move in and greet him; if he wants to pull back, send him on his way.

Ueshiba Morihei (O’ Sensei)

Aikido is a Japanese martial art developed by Morihei Ueshiba as a synthesis of his martial studies, philosophy, and religious beliefs. Aikido is often translated as “the way of unifying (with) life energy” or as “the way of harmonious spirit.” Ueshiba’s goal was to create an art that practitioners could use to defend themselves while also protecting their attacker from injury.

In life, the Key is to be yourself. Train diligently, have confidence in your ability and always respect your opponents.

Chief Instructor, Shihan Philip Lee
