Aikido in Japanese is made up of three characters or kanji. The first and most important is "AI" which means "to meet, come together and harmonise". The second kanji is "KI" which means "the spirit(of the universe) or soul". The third or last character is "DO" which means "the way or path", as in Kendo or Judo, to signify that the study of Aikido does not involve only self-defence techniques but includes positive character-building ideals which a person can incorporate into his or her daily life.
