About this event


1st Kyu or more advanced students.

Aikido is "The Art of Peace", originally from Japan. In Ki Aikido, we emphasize the awareness and use of Ki (mind energy, intention).

We start a typical class by practicing Ki Development exercises to learn the feeling of Coordination of Mind and Body, for relaxed, efficient, yet powerful movement, in aikido or in daily life. By practicing Coordination, we begin to understand what Ki feels like. Then we practice Ki Aikido exercises using a controlled and choreographed attack from a partner, so we can learn to sense our partner's Ki, blend with it and redirect it so that their movement follows. The exercises teach us how to apply the principle of non-dissention to transform potential conflict into a peaceful resolution. Suitable for adults for all ages and levels of physical ability. Beginners may try a free General class anytime. The High Grade class is for 1st Kyu or more advanced students.
