|Aikibojitsu is a beautiful and challenging art form witihin which, through precise and flowing
movements with a staff, practitioners explore both the depths of silence and peaks of explosive
power. Aikibojitsu is moving meditation, an archetypal call for practitioners to look deeply and directly
at existence, alone and with power.
Aikibojitsu is a highly sophisticated and powerful martial art whose real challenge comes down to
confrontation with a simple stick of wood. There is no hiding from oneself in this confrontation
because the staff is a perfect mirror.
Aikibojitsu is a compelling martial system for even the most experienced martial artist, but it is truly
an art form for everyone. People begin study who have no martial background at all, while others
who have extensive martial arts experience find Aikibojitsu to be an unusually powerful
demonstration of the true power of non-resistance.
