About Kokikai Aikido

Aikido is a powerful and effective martial art for self-defence. Our vision is to realise the finest self-defence ability and to develop and apply Kokikai Aikido training to improve the daily lives of Kokikai practitioners.

Kokikai is a Ki style of Aikido, and translates as the group with radiant Ki.

This means that when you see people practising Kokikai Aikido you can see them using their inner power. We can practise to develop this Ki power through training and Ki exercises that help us to become stronger in mind and body. Kokikai is a relaxed and natural form of Aikido where we practise to become more powerful without relying on strength by following the four basic principles. We concentrate on these things to develop better technique and to improve our technique and ourselves in daily life.

Kokikai Aikido founder and President of Aikido Kokikai International Shuji Maruyama Sensei began his study of Aikido in 1955. He lives and teaches at Kokikai headquarters in Nagoya, Japan and comes to Australia to teach every  year.
The natural state is the most powerful.
