A Japanese martial art created by Morihei Ueshiba (1883-1969). It is a joint locking and throwing art derived from Jujitsu and several Japanese weapons systems. In large part, the physical aspects of the system rely on circularity of movement. Allegedly, this circularity was infused into the system when the founder incorporated a Chinese system into the art. The reliance on circularity is also attributed to the circularity in Japanese weapons systems.
Currently, New Model Aikido is only offered at the Kim’s Cranberry location.
