The idea of aikido was to control a situation without fighting. This mentality corresponded to the tendency in US and Europe after 1960 and aikido started to get supported philosophically. The idea of resolving a conflict without fighting became a part of the philosophy of aikido.

Aikido is a way to create a situation where it is difficult to attack. If an attack does not happen, defence is not necessary. I think this is the only way for peace.
