Morihei Ueshiba - Founder of Aikido

Truly a Great Dude in History.

Checkout his 114 verse Art of Peace: http://www.aikidonj.com/pages/ueshiba.html

some of my favorites:

Three

All things, material and spiritual, originate from one source and are related as if they were one family. The past, present, and future are all contained in the life force. The universe emerged and developed from one source, and we evolved through the optimal process of unification and harmonization.

Four

The Art of Peace is medicine for a sick world. There is evil and disorder in the world because people have forgotten that all things emanate from one source. Return to that source and leave behind all self-centered thoughts, petty desires, and anger. Those who are possessed by nothing possess everything.

Five

If you have not
Linked yourself
To true emptiness,
You will never understand
The Art of Peace.

Fourteen

Contemplate the workings of this world, listen to the words of the wise, and take all that is good as your own. With this as your base, open your own door to truth. Do not overlook the truth that is right before you. Study how water flows in a valley stream, smoothly and freely between the rocks. Also learn from holy books and wise people. Everything - even mountains, rivers, plants and trees - should be your teacher.

Twenty Seven

The essence of the Art of Peace is to cleanse yourself of maliciousness, to get in tune with your environment, and to clear your path of all obstacles and barriers.

Thirty Three

The Art of Peace does not rely on weapons or brute force to succeed; instead we put ourselves in tune with the universe (abide), maintain peace in our own realms, nurture life, and prevent death and destruction. The true meaning of the term samurai is one who serves and adheres to the power of love.

One Hundred Eleven

When you bow deeply to the universe (aka abide), it bows back; when you call out the name of God, it echoes inside you.

One Hundred Twelve

The Art of Peace is the religion that is not a religion; it perfects and completes all religions.

If I understand correctly, Aikido is more about avoiding any hitting that about hitting somebody, so yes.
