Aikido Yoshinkan has its roots in traditional Japanese martial arts dating back over 800 years. It is the official style of Aikido practiced by the Tokyo Metropolitan and Riot Police in Japan. There are no tournaments and it is not classed as a sport. This style of Aikido is dynamic and very effective; it is a system of throwing, joint locks, strikes and pinning techniques.
