Glossary of sports
a martial art originating in Japan that involves throwing techniques that make use of an opponent's momentum to perform the throw and may also involve some strikes (2006. Dictionary of Sport and Exercise Science. A&C Black Publishers Ltd)
(in Japanese ai = harmony, ki = mind and do = path) form of self defense which is a discipline of budo sport, but is not practiced as a combat sport. Aikido was developed toward the end of the 19th century by the Japanese Mori-hei Ujeschiba (* 1882, fl969) from the old Japanese martial art of Jujutsu and in accordance with the philosophy of Zen-Bhuddism. The essential characteristic of Aikido technique and tactic is the intentional and passive behaviour toward the opponent. The movement of the attacker is either interrupted or led on a extended circular path, where the defender makes skilled use of the centrifugal forces acting on the attacker for bringing him off-balance. To achieve this the defender makes circular and roll movements and applies hip, body and shoulder throws. Except for the throwing techniques all techniques end with an arm, hand or neck lock. Participants in Aikido wear a judo jacket and a wide black divided skirt which ensure freedom to move. The international organization is the International Aikido Federation (IAF; head office in Tokyo). (Herbert Haag & Gerald Haag. 2003. Dictionary. Sport, Physical Education, Sport Science. Kiel, Institut für Sport und Sportwissenschaften)
