Interested in trying out a class in Aikido? Wondering what your first class would be like? Watch this short video and find out. Though we have to warn you: It's nowhere near as much fun as actually being here. In fact, click here so you can read about how Kokikai Aikido has impacted the lives of some of our students and what their practice means to them.
This site was created by Aikido Kokikai of Rochester, which is located in Rochester, New York, USA. We'd love to have you come practice with us. For as much as we hope this site will be valuable in helping you to understand the principles behind our art, there is no substitute for actually practicing Aikido. Find out more about Aikido Kokikai, and the Rochester dojo.
So how do you get started? Click on any of the links above. > But Basics might be the best place to start. There, you'll learn of the four basic principles that are the key to feeling good and getting better results in your life. After that, maybe try a few Ki Exercises for getting your mind and body working together.
Aikido principles apply to pretty much everything. Like, say, blacksmithing?. Read what teacher, blacksmith, and Aikido black belt Brian Martens has to say about applying Aikido to his hobby and vice versa.
Body/Mind training doesn't just feel good. It lets you do weird stuff that impresses your friends and is hard to explain. Like make your very relaxed arm very hard to bend. So if you're in the mood for learning things that make you seem slightly superhuman, check out our Cool Ki Tricks section.
Feel inspired to keep learning - even after you've seen everything on this site? Then follow our free our blog on-line. You'll learn more about our dojo(school), about Aikido Kokikai, and about how Aikido principles apply to your daily life.
