About Aikido

Kokikai Aikido is a journey to self-mastery through martial arts training. The Kokikai method encourages students to realize their full potential in all activities of daily life through effective self-defense techniques. The development of inner strength (Ki power) increases physical and mental strength, improves mind-body coordination, and stimulates good health. Kokikai Aikido helps students build a secure foundation for a successful and fulfilling life both on and off the mat.

In a physical confrontation, most people naturally experience fear. Blood rises to the brain, the heart pounds, and calmness disappears. In such an incorrect state of being, they cannot use their whole ability. Similarly some people perform well in sports practice, but when competition begins in earnest, they fall apart. These people have not realized their strongest states of being and as a result cannot harness their full potential.

By striving to attain the most correct state of being, we can unleash our peak human potential. Our reflexes become quicker. We gain the calmness of mind necessary to avoid being upset by sudden changes. We can clearly perceive an attacker’s intentions. We feel more confident and competent in our professional and personal interactions. We feel safer as our self-defense movements become more effective. We perform better in all endeavors. And once we have seen the benefits of the correct state of being, we come to recognize when we are drifting off course so that we can make adjustments to maintain this desired state.

The Kokikai School of Aikido features a logical training system with concrete goals that will lead to a mastery of self-defense and the development of each individual’s full potential power. This correct state of being will become constant and dependable through rigorous training. The Kokikai Training Method will lead students to deeper self-discovery. The result will ultimately be the betterment of ourselves, our society, and the whole world. Please join us in realizing your full potential through Kokikai Aikido.
