Welcome to Korea Aikido Federation

Aikido is a modern martial art created by Morihei Ueshiba (1883-1969). Originated from several traditional Japanese martial arts, the principle study of Aikido, which is based on harmonizng energies and seeks to protect the attacker as well as the defender, has grown to worldwide recognition as a martial art after the World War II.


Aikido, the word, stems from several Japanese words: Ai, meaning Harmony; Ki, which though elusive in its physical manifestation, can best be described as Nature’s Energy; and Do, meaning Way. Thus, Aikido the martial art, is literally the “Way of Harmony of Nature’s Energy.” It has a principle behind it. Where other martial arts might cause one to defend oneself by inflicting damage or by destructing an attacker, Aikido seeks to harmonize with an attacker’s Ki, or energy, and turn it away or neutralize it, thus defend not only the defender but also even the attacker.


Aikido is a martial art of peace and is different from other martial arts. It strengthens an strong and unmovable center in continuous smooth movements. All the movements extend from that unmovable center and are practiced within very friendly attitude and spirit, as the way of the harmony of nature.


The essence of Aikido is to understand the principle of nature, to adapt to them, to be thankful for its wondrous power and to apply them to real life. Just as a tree has its roots, students who wantes to learn Aikido should seek to understand the principle and the essence, and then seek to improve his own ability.


Aikido’s core foundation is Aikikai with its Hombu Dojo(world Aikido headquarters) in Tokyo, Japan. And the International Aikido Federation (IAF) is a member of SportAccord, previously known as General Association of International Sports Federations (GAISF). There are over 1.8 million students of Aikido(Aikidoka) worldwide.


In the Republic of Korea, the first step of Aikido was made in 1989 when I met KOBAYASHI Yasuo shihan(8th dan) of Aikido Kobayashi Dojos. In the begining, it was a small social organization, but its hard work trying to spread Aikido over Korea led to the incorporation of Korea Aikido Federation (KAF) in 2001. KAF is now an official branch federation of Aikikai, and also a member of the IAF, International Aikido Federation.


I hope that young people choose to learn Aikido, to become leaders who have the strong center inside, but still learn to engrave friendly attitude and kind spirit in themselves for the world in the midst of rapid change.


YOON, Dae-hyun

President

Korea Aikido Federation
