Ki Class

Ki training is the heart of Aikido. In most martial arts what ki training there is comes from repeating physical exercises until you have the insight to see the deeper levels of the practice, or not. What makes ki-aikido different is the teaching methods of Koichi Tohei Sensei. He developed a way of teaching that allows even beginners to experience what experienced practitioners can do, even in the first classes. This taste of sugar, seeing the power of mind and body coordination is profound. It is easy to experience but hard to maintain. Ki training is about keeping this state of mind in your practice and your work and life.

In Ki class we work with aspects of aikido that do not involve throws or attacks, instead focusing on the most subtle parts of the practice. Ki classes can be done by anyone regardless of physical limitations that might make one leery to try the more physical demanding parts of aikido class. We also include breathing exercises and meditation techniques as part of our practice.
