Women and Aikido

Aikido Woman, SeatedCome to any Kokikai Aikido seminar, and you’ll find that many of the students on the mat are women. Watch them train, and you’ll see them effortlessly throw men who outweigh them by a hundred pounds or more.

With Kokikai Aikido, this is possible because we focus on timing, balance, and positioning. You do not defend yourself by meeting force with force–instead, you meet force with misdirection; strength with subtlety. An attacker may seem bigger, stronger, or faster, but with correct principles, you can render those advantages meaningless.
