Grass ImgeImportance of Practicing Aikido with Ki

Aikido with Ki is a refined, graceful and effective martial art. It stresses the use of coordination of mind and body and the centering of one's self. In learning Aikido, there is no competition or sparring as you will find in other martial arts. The students work together to improve as a whet stone does with the knife, teaching kindly and with patience. Aikido helps build:

  • Becoming confident
  • Becoming capable
  • Building a healthy sense of self-esteem, community
  • Willingness and ability to help and teach others
  • Discipline and appreciation of the value of same
  • Ability to focus and willingness to sacrifice in the short term to work towards worthy goals

Most of our students find that Aikido has helped them in many areas of thier lives, including stress reduction, self control, self confidence, discipline, weight loss, and general well-being. Everyone can benefit from the confidence of knowing you are ready for any eventuality. This is particularly true for women.
