Ki-Aikido (Ki-Aikido) - The Unity of Spirit and Body

Ki aikido (Ki-Aikido, Shin Sin Toitsu Aikido - Unity of mind and body) - Aikido based direction Koichi Toheem, student and head instructor Morihei Ueshiba. In Ki-Aikido, emphasis is placed on internal work supported by a system of tests for CI (CI), breathing exercises, and working with weapons. The fundamental basis of Shin Shin Toitsu Aikido is expressed by the words: “thought moves the body”.

Ki-Aikido is not only a martial art and system of self-defense, it is a whole philosophy that finds application in situations arising in everyday life. Being one of the softest styles, Ki-aikido is characterized by fluid movements, which, unlike other directions, are often supported by jumps or leaps. The principle underlying Ki-Aikido is to always strive to maintain harmony, which means that an attack should not be met by stiffness, but by soft, leading movements. The studied techniques are considered mainly not as having an applied aspect, but as ways of developing the unification of the mind and body of the student. Nevertheless, it should be noted that everything studied is applicable not only in broad aspects of everyday life, but also for effective self-defense.

Classes in Ki-Aikido are conducted on soft mats - tatami, and consist of exercises for the development of Ki (Ki-Taiso), single exercises (Aiki-Taiso), techniques of falls, the correct behavior of the attacker when developing techniques (Ukemi), Aikido techniques, Ki - tests, meditation, breathing exercises. The purpose of the technique is to control the attacker without causing him any damage. In order to better understand the principles underlying Ki-Aikido, along with the technique without weapons, we also perform the technique with a wooden knife (tanto), a wooden sword (bokken) and a wooden stick.
