Aikido with Ki (Shin Shin Toitsu Aikido)

Aikido literally means the way to harmony with Ki. Students study Shin Shin Toitsu Aikido to learn to coordinate mind and body, to work with others positively, and realize their full potential. Aikidoists use Ki to powerfully lead their opponents rather than colliding or fighting with them. The principles of Aikido apply directly to dealing productively with people in daily life. Students learn the process of applying Ki to the martial art utilizing the principles of non-dissension and the five principles of Shin Shin Toitsu Aikido.

The Orange County Ki Society teaches Ki Aikido in a traditional Dojo setting. The classes are led by highly skilled instructors with 15 to 40 years of experience. Instructors travel annually to Japan to ensure that the latest teaching is available to students.
