About Good Aikido Techniques
Good Aikido is a “thinking person’s” martial art. We are not brawlers, don’t expect us to be in a cage or a pit fighting to earn money or to prove our worth. We strive for personal development and mastery. You will also notice if you ask, that most Good Aikidoka has done one or two more martial arts besides Aikido. That was the tradition at the beginning of the last century. Aikido was the martial art to do to finalise a budoka’s journey in the mastery of budo.
Good Aikido can be practiced even in the Aikidoka’s senior years.
Most Aikido students do Aikido to improve their fitness, improve their flexibility and coordination and calm their mind after a hard day’s work. As the Aikidoka progresses he or she becomes more confident and assertive.
Self-discipline, strong focus, a peaceful philosophy, an assertive energy, and confidence is an internal effect caused by practicing Aikido.
Good Aikido is a mental martial art that can be used in day to day situations.
We are about Good Aikido techniques. Aikido the martial art has suffered some bad press and reputation in the past decade. The budo part of Aikido was diluted by the interpretation of many masters and teachers that called their art Aikido. These types of ‘bad’ Aikido has many followers and they have documented their version in books, videos, and websites. As a result, the effectiveness and the reputation of Aikido as a good martial art declined. We want to correct that. Aikido is a good and effective martial art. Good Aikido wants to present the real martial art of Aikido to the world.
Good Aikido is about practicing a good martial art
Good Aikido is NOT magic or hocus pocus. We train hard, our punches, kicks, locks, chokes and attacks are real and we just don’t fall or get thrown magically. We are solid as a square, sharp as a triangle and swift as a circle. Inside us is a strong life energy (ki) that thrives on curiosity, bliss, consciousness, harmony and peace.
Good Aikidoka does Aikido because he or she wants to do martial arts yet has a strong peaceful and harmonious nature. Most martial artists will never understand this because they want to compete and fight to prove their worth. Although we strive for peace and harmony, a good Aikidoka will use Aikido and everything in his or her budo arsenal to control and contain the violence (prepare to kiss the ground in a lock).
This is Good Aikido.
