What is Aikido?
Aikido literally meaning "harmony energy way", or with some poetic license, "way of the harmonious spirit" is a gendai budo — a modern Japanese martial art. Practitioners of aikido are known as "aikidoka". It was developed by Morihei Ueshiba (also known by aikidoka as o-sensei) over the period of the 1930s to the 1960s. Technically, the major parts of aikido are derived from Daito RyuDaitō-ryū Aiki-jūjutsu, a form of jujutsu with many joint techniques, and kenjutsu, or Japanese sword technique. Aikido is also considered to contain a significant spiritual component.

BAF in Brief

Aikido Federation, Brunei Darussalam (BAF) is registered under the Societies Act on 15th August 2005 (Ref:BPD 25/1183). Aikido was first introduced in Brunei in 2004 by Andrew Nisbett sensei, 2nd dan. However, Andrew Nisbett sensei had to return to England in early 2005. Faced with a lack of experienced instructors locally, the founding members of the BAF were prompted to seek technical assistance overseas and eventually came under the technical supervision of Aikikai Malaysia Association. Now, BAF's members train regularly under the tutelage of Zainuddin Abd Khalic sensei, 4th dan, as well as other instructors from Aikikai Malaysia. Zainuddin sensei is currently the Supervising Technical Instructor of BAF.
