“Ai-Ki-Do” means “Harmony of Spirit”.
THE INSTITUTE OF AIKIDO INTERNATIONAL
exists to provide a home for martial arts clubs worldwide that are searching for a mutually supportive framework in which they can develop and share knowledge, irrespective of style, technical discipline, culture or lineage.
The organisation promotes frequent “open-door” seminars (open to all, irrespective of style or experience) at member dojos around the world, and actively encourages and supports the growth of local martial arts knowledge-sharing networks. A recent 4-day summer camp held in Auckland, New Zealand boasted 10 instructors from 7 different styles, including Aikido, Ju Jitsu, Krav Maga, Goju Ryu, Karate, Tai-Chi and Systema, and was a wonderful opportunity for the local martial arts community to interact, share ideas and develop their networks.
Our members are free to follow their own technical and cultural lineage; all the benefits of interaction with like-minded martial arts groups worldwide, without the constraints of prescriptive technical control.
