Aikido comes from the same martial lineage as judo and jujitsu. It emphasizes blending with attacks rather than countering force with force, and utilizes throws, joint locks, and pins. Although many techniques include softening strikes (atemi), the goal of aikido is to neutralize aggression swiftly without undue harm to the attacker.
