Integrity Martial Arts has Aikido classes for adults on Monday nights at 7:30 p.m. The classes are taught through Ellicott City Aikido Kokikai.
Aikido Kokikai is a self-defense art that uses throws and pins to defend against striking and grabbing attacks. One moves out of the way of an attack and simultaneously uses the attack’s momentum to unbalance and redirect the attacker. In other words, Aikido Kokikai uses timing, evasion, and redirection, not great physical strength in order to neutralize an attack.
Aikido Kokikai has a minimalist aesthetic expressed as “minimum effort for maximum effect”. In Kokikai the ideal technique is the most natural and comfortable one, requiring the least movement and the least energy. Kokikai is also a modern school of Aikido: our techniques continually evolve and become more effective against realistic attacks.
