This was an historic event for us, combining online Zoom instruction with live classes, in those places where it was possible. Many had to train at home on their own with only the nationally broadcast Zoom instruction.

It was a huge success in the support shown by the student body. Technology let us down on some occasions and it was certainly a challenge for those teaching to take into consideration the many circumstances of the people to whom they were demonstrating. Despite any shortcomings we received overwhelming positive comments and it was an event where we all learnt valuable lessons, in many senses of the word.

We are waiting for confirmation regarding the change of date for the IAF Summit which was scheduled for September 2020 in Japan. There is a date mooted later in 2021, but this may change.

Information

Ken Trebilco Sensei recognised for his 40 year contribution to Hobart Dojo



Chemere Birkinsleigh has provided us with an extra illustration for the basic Sword Stances we use in Aiki Kai Australia. The new addition shows defensive jodan (as seen in the Go-no-ken movement). Most are familiar with the offensive position, the sword held high above the head but the defensive position can be tricky, particularly when you have your left leg forward. That's the version we have on the amended page of illustrations.  MORE

What is 
Aikido?


The Japanese martial art of Aikido is a comprehensive system of throwing, joint-locking and pinning techniques based on a philosophy of non-aggression.

It is not a sport.

HOW TO JOIN AIKIDO


Aikido has many physical and psychological benefits. The versatility of the art makes it ideal for students of all ages.

    WITH 
      KIDS 
CLASSES

Aikido really does try to train without the over use of physical strength, which is the reason why males and females can work together equally.

When joining a martial school the student takes on a completely different attitude to exercise than if you were joining a gym.




AIKIDO MORAL CODE


Aikido is a Way

There is commitment and there is obligation
Do not abuse or misuse the art of Aikido
Study carefully, honestly and humbly
Respect your seniors 
Take care of your juniors
