Aikibojitsu is a beautiful and challenging art form witihin which, through precise and flowing
movements with a staff, practitioners explore both depths of silence and peaks of explosive power.
Aikibojitsu is moving meditation, an archetypal call for practitioners to look deeply and directly at the
fact of existence, alone, and with power.

Aikibojitsu's sophisticated and powerful martial system ultimately comes down to confrontation with a
simple stick of wood. In this confrontation there is no hiding from oneself because the staff is a
perfect mirror.

Aikibojitsu is a compelling martial study for the complete beginner, to the most advanced martial
artist. Truly an art form for everyone, Aikibojitsu provides an in-depth and comprehensive
examination of the power of non-resistance.
