Roots of Aikido Study Group

Aikido Kenkyukai NEWCASTLE invites you to:


WHAT? A structured, collaborative, process-oriented workshop bringing practitioners together to study the ancient origins of aikido.

HOW? Use lectures, demonstration and shared practice with experienced leaders to examine terms used for the accepted principles of aikido in the context of its Chinese and Japanese heritage.

The art of aikido is a synthesis of ancient martial arts knowledge and experience derived from India, China and Japan. This workshop is an opportunity to receive input from teachers with roots in Chinese and Japanese martial arts to help us examine the language we use to communicate why we do what we do in our practice. It is also a forum for each of us to demonstrate, share and obtain feedback on how we synthesise, embody and communicate, in mind, body and spirit, the knowledge and experience we pass on in daily practice.
