Aikido uses an opponent balance against them to disarm the aggressor, whereas, Judo uses explosion of force on force to disarm and opponent; causing retreat or surrender. Both arts are of Japanese heritage; as both arts perform dodging movement and counter attacks within a scope of harmony with the world around them. Aikido is a gentle Art, as with Judo, except Judo is more world wide recognized in the Olympic as a known or popular Olympic sport.
