Aikido practice to watch how to strengthen
our own mind, ki and body, how to interact

of use in our daily life.
AIKIDO is Daily Life
<what is ki ? >
One of the most important things in Kokikai
Aikido is "extending Ki".
But there is no such thing as "throwing

achieve a state of unification of mind and
body, andwe can cultivate a strong body.
