Aikido is a Japanese Martial Art. The Literal translation is "The Way in Harmony with the Spirit." Defensive in nature, the style guides an attacker's committed momentum into a circular motion that allows the attacker to be thrown or controlled by his own force.

The Nihon Goshen curriculum combines traditional Aikido with modernized teaching techniques. In addition, some basic Karate techniques have been blended in, enabling the student to have a broader choice of defense.
