Aiki has nothing to do with "manipulating" people. Aiki is on a completely different level.
Depends on your definition of "manipulate" but if you use:

"Handle or control (a tool, mechanism, etc.), typically in a skillful manner"

It seems to fit to me.

Ars longa, vita brevis, occasio praeceps, experimentum periculosum, iudicium difficile
