Typical Class

Each class includes the practice of a variety of techniques which embody the practice of the Four Principles of Kokikai Aikido.

  • Breathing exercises
  • Stretching and warm-ups
  • Ki development
  • Self-defense techniques
  • Weapons katas and techniques

 

Four Basic Principles
  • Keep One Point to Develop Calmness (One Point refers to the center of the body both physically and mentally.)
  • Relax Progressively (Use Ki breathing and other techniques to relax the mind and body.)
  • Find Correct Posture in Everything (Fixing your posture affects how you feel and how you are perceived by others.)
  • Develop Positive Thinking (There is immense power in positive outlook.)

 

Benefits of Aikido

Focusing on practicing the Four Principles helps us respond appropriately in situations on and off the mat. With regular practice you will be better able to

  • Focus at work
  • Handle stressful situations
  • Avoid and/or resolve conflict
  • Have compassion for others

 

More about our story

Kokikai, unlike other styles of Aikido practice, centers around being relaxed, calm, and aware in order to achieve your strongest state. We combat stress through training our mind and body to relax during stressful situations (such as an attack).
 
This training directly helps students be their best in their daily lives. For example, at work this training helps students remain focused and be relaxed during stressful situations such as meeting deadlines or dealing with difficult personalities.
