Info about "Ki Aikido video"
Ki-Aikido (Shinshin Touitsu Aikidō) is the style of aikido, a modern Japanese martial art developed by Koichi Tohei. Ki-Aikido is not practiced as a competitive sport.
The English translation of Ki-Aikido literally means “the way of harmony with universal energy”. Emphasizing harmony and grace of movement, Ki-Aikido is considered a non-aggressive art. Rather than responding to an opponent with force, a Ki-Aikido practicioner redirects an opponents’ attacking energy into a pin or a roll.
Ki is a Japanese word meaning “Life Force”, which is conceptually related to the Chinese Qi and is of great importance to the way in which Koichi Tohei’s style of aikido is taught. Tohei’s style of aikido is correctly called Shin Shin Toitsu Aikido , meaning “aikido with mind and body unified”, but it is frequently referred to as Ki-Aikido, particularly in the Western world.
