Kokoro Aikido's chief instructor has over 45 years martial arts experience. Kokoro Aikido is a traditional style which draws from the old style of Samurai Akijujitsu a battlefield art never defeated. Weapons are used to extend and supplement the empty hand methods and females have a dedicated lady black belt who gives valuable insights for the female perspective.
Kokoro Aikido uses both ancient and modern knowledge and is probably the only Aikido dojo which uses true energy disruption methods. This knowledge was gained from the chief instructor being a personal student of the late great Erle Montaigue Founder of the W.T.B.A. Kata and Randori is used to underpin the synthesis of natural movement. Kokoro Aikido uses only practical methods of movement and not technique.
