Adult classes welcome beginners and advanced. Kokikai Aikido relies on a strong mind and correct technique not physical strength alone. As a result, classes include both men and women practicing on equal footing. Designed to defend against multiple attackers, it offers many solutions to aggressive behaviour by others. Kokikai Aikido practice is characterized by realistic, focused attacks, and the fluid responses that employ timing and rhythm to take the opponents balance completely before the application of a throwing technique.

More importantly we focus on being centred, calm in a crisis and working with each other. We consider we are building a better community.
