Why does Aikido Martial Arts focus on pressure points instead of equipment?

In many martial art sports, certain equipment is needed in training. For Aikido Martial Arts, which is basically a form of street fighting, all you need is communication and your hands. Your hands are your biggest weapon, and they can amaze you in ways you never thought imaginable. Sensei Michael Stabile, the head instructor at the Aikido School of Self Defense in Conyers, Georgia, says the beauty of Aikido is that less is more. “In Aikido, the only equipment needed is the uniform.

Sensai Morihei Ueshiba

Morihei Ueshiba (1883-1969) was history's greatest martial artist. Even as an old man of eighty, he could disarm any foe, down any number of attackers, and pin an opponent with a single finger. Although invincible as a warrior, he was above all a man of peace who detested fighting, war, and any kind of violence. His way was Aikido, which can be translated as "The Art of Peace." Morihei Ueshiba is referred to by the practitioners of Aikido as O Sensei, "The Great Teacher".

The Founder Of Aikido (O’ sensei Morihei Ueshiba1883-1969)

The founder of Aikido, Morihei Ueshiba, was born on December 14, 1883, to a farming family in an area of the Wakayama Prefecture now known as Tanabe. Among five children, he was the only son. From his father Yoroku, he inherited a samurai's determination and interest in public affairs, and from his mother an intense interest in religion, poetry and art. In his early childhood, Morihei was rather weak and sickly, which led to his preference of staying indoors to read books instead of playing outside.

What is Aikido?

Aikido is a martial art, created by the late Morihei Ueshiba, of Japan at the start of the 20th century. Ueshiba's talents in swordsmanship and Daitoryu Aiki-Jujitsu, can clearly be seen within each and every Aikido technique.
Ueshiba based Aikido upon circular movements to redirect aggressive and offensive attacks back to the assailant. It consists of purely defensive techniques. For more practical defenses, sometimes atemi (punching and kicking) is used and illustrated in practice.

Karate Belt Rankings-Meaning & Significance

The Karate Belt rankings are the greatest source of gratification to the Karateka. These ranks provide the necessary incentive to the Karateka and urge him to work harder to achieve the next belt. In the initial days of Karate-do and in fact other allied martial arts like Judo and Aikido the only belts awarded were the White, Brown and Black Belts. No other coloured belts were awarded. Thus Karateka in those days had no option-either he passed or he failed. It was real serious stuff, a matter of life & death, success and failure.

Benefits of Martial Arts

It is scientifically proven to be the safest martial art in the world. No injuries and no side effects. Martial Arts are based on principles derived from the scientific fields of Biomechanics, Kinesiology, Chiropractic and Psycho-Neurology.
There are no locks out movements, which include damage to the joints. Traditional styles incorporate techniques causing the limbs to stop in hyper extended position, which is potentially damaging to the joints.
Each technique is designed to go with the body’s natural movement. Every movement is circular and uses body momentum to develop 100% power in the kicks, punches and all other techniques.

Exercise Myths

You Will Burn More Fat If You Exercise Longer at a Lower Intensity.

The most important focus in exercise and fat weight control is not the percentage of exercise energy coming from fat but the total energy cost, or how many calories are burned during the activity. The faster you walk, step or run, for example, the more calories you use perminute. However, high-intensity exercise is difficult to sustain if you are just beginning or returning to exercise, so you may not exercise very long at this level. It is safer, and more practical, to start out at a lower intensity and work your way up gradually.
