Article: "Aikido Self-Defense Techniques Gain Popularity on UT Campu
Posted 2/26/2009 3:19pm [from Jun Akiyama]

Here's an article about the aikido club at the University of Texas entitled "Aikido Self-Defense Techniques Gain Popularity on UT Campus". The article also contains a three minute video about the club. From the article: Aikido is a Japanese martial art designed around the concept of using attackers’ movements against them through redirection, rather than meeting conflict with more conflict. "Aikido focuses on not harming the other person," said club president David Simmons, a chemical engineering graduate student. "The idea is to protect myself, protect my opponent and resolve the conflict. Aikido itself means the way of harmonious energy."
