Aikido & the Path

Of the many martial arts aikido is the one which places the heaviest emphasis on a pursuit of the Path. Practice in the dojo, training in daily life and demonstrations where practitioners display the results of their training all form part of the art. We are dedicated to carrying forward O-Sensei's principles of training one's ki, mind and body through a search for truth based on aikido while enjoying a state of freedom wherein all things in nature and the flow of ki are combined into one. This, moreover, involves creation of a seed to protect Absolute Truth through achievement of a state of harmony with all living things.
