AikiConcepts is a not-for-profit organization focused on the lessons contained in the non-competitive arts of Aikido and Jodo.
We provide ways for people to become more physically active, confident and mentally engaged.
Part of our name, “Aiki,” comes from two Japanese words:
“Ai” means to blend or harmonize with. The pictograph is thought to represent the spirit that permits a family to live together under one roof
“Ki” is interpreted as “universal life energy;” the force that animates and bonds together all living creatures.
The ideas that promote harmonious blending of energy are AikiConcepts.
We have gathered under one roof a variety of Asian martial arts which can enlarge the human spirit. We seek to practice ways through which we can engage with the world with energy, open mindedness and peace. Our practice also helps us to defend ourselves and others, if necessary.
We seek to support each other in this endeavor. We recognize that each student is traveling along this path of lifelong study, some near the beginning and some further along. Competition has no place in this study.
We hope our continuing practice will both protect the individual, and enhance the community.
