List of Aikido Techniques with Instructions

Listed below are a wide variety of Aikido techniques (i.e. elbow control, throws, pinning, etc.). This Japanese martial arts has hundreds of different techniques and combinations. Nevertheless, we have tried to list a number of the most common basic techniques and/or well-known techniques used in Aikido and provide you with instructional videos for these techniques. However, be aware that the names for some techniques can vary by school. You will also find many of these techniques used in Aikido katas. For basic Jo techniques, please visit the Aikido Jo Suburi section.

However, please be aware that techniques can vary slightly between Aikido styles. For example, Aikikai techniques can be "lighter" on the feet compared to Yoshinkan (which focuses on feet from being firmly planted on the ground).

The information on these pages and videos are meant to reinforce and supplement the instruction given at your Aikido classes. To properly understand these techniques, you need to learn them from an Aikido instructor who can provide you with an in-depth explanation of the technique, help correct your mistakes, answer your questions and detail how the technique should be utilized.
