I am very interested into looking into martial arts for bettering my self. Please excuse any ignorance I may have, I am new to martial arts. I am looking for something that will teach me more than to fight. I do not like fighting, I am not built for fighting. Would akido be well suited for a type like me? If not, what should I look into?

It sounds as though you are similar to me, and although I have only been training for a while, I would say that aikido suits very well people like you and I.
Aikido doesnt teach you how to fight, I would say, more like how to take control of situations and stop people from fighting/attacking you. I personally definetly prefer this approach to something like karate, or kickboxing.

Only one real way to know for sure and thats to try it out. Put it on and see if it fits you....

Good Luck,
