Two-minute aikido documentary by Anita Köhler, Mannheim [watch on Vimeo]

Aikido is a dynamic Japanese martial art that promotes self-awareness and non-violence. Its techniques are focused on unbalancing and controlling an aggressor by blending with the movement of an attack, allowing the attacker to be destabalised without using brute force. Regular practice builds physical and mental resilience and instils calm and self-control. Aikido builds confidence, fitness and flexibility, and gives an insight into traditional Japanese culture.
