Aikido

Aikido is a self-defensive martial art created in Japan in the mid 20th century.  Aikido is a modern Japanese martial art that teaches coordination of mind and body to develop calmness in action and the strongest human condition. Aikido techniques can be effective without harming the attacker, which allows practice to be comfortable, and ethical self-defense to be an ideal.

Latham Kokikai Aikido training offers the opportunity to learn how to control ourselves,so that we are able to respond to any situation gently and with confidence both in and out of the dojo.The Kokikai method encourages students to realize their full potential in all activities of daily life through effective self-defense techniques.The development of inner strength (Ki power) increases physical and mental strength, improves mind-body coordination, and stimulates good health. Kokikai Aikido helps students build a secure foundation for a successful and fulfilling life both on and off the mat.

How to Save Family &
Relationships

Go back to the beginning. Ask yourself: What drew me to this person to begin with? What qualities did they possess that I found valuable? What made them so amazing? And are they still? Reevaluating the reasons you came together reminds you of the reasons to stay together, and this strengthens your already-existing foundation.
