Toward a Semiosis of the Martial Arts: Aikido as a Symbolic Form of Communication

Toward a Semiosis of the Martial Arts: Aikido as a Symbolic Form of Communication

It is the thesis of this article that we can arrive at a deeper understanding of aikido if we consider it to be a symbolic form of communication, as well as a martial art, and utilize the science of semiotics to translate the “message” encoded in the “body language” of aikido techniques. A?photographic technical section illustrates this process.
