Our method

The Kokikai method encourages students to realize their full potential in all activities of daily life through effective self-defense techniques. The development of inner strength (ki power) increases physical and mental strength, improves mind-body coordination, and stimulates good health. Kokikai Aikido helps students build a secure foundation for a successful and fulfilling life both on and off the mat.
