Aikido is a form of Japanese martial arts often translated as ‘way of unifying life energy’. It is designed for the purpose of self-defense but is great for exercising every limb and joint in the body as well as increasing flexibility, muscle tone, co-ordination and awareness. Although practicing Aikido is good for fitness, it focuses more on movement, timing and reaction, whilst giving a good work-out for the brain at the same time.
