    As a non-violent martial art, Aikido can be applied to conflict management, better relations, cooperation, communication

  • Embodied practice, philosophy in the flesh

  • Conflict without violence
    When stakes are high, our mind gets disconnected. Aiki practice reunifies us, body and mind, to restore peace and dialogue


Applied Aikido can be defined as a field (i.e. as a particular branch of study or sphere of activity or interest). Just as applied science is the application of science, Applied Aikido is the application of aikido in life.

What are our objectives?

We want to

  • create a repository of practices, approaches, models, techniques and processes that have been developped as long as they are based on aikido (either based on the physical practice or based on its values, philosophy, principles)
  • propose
    • a directory of professionals using Applied Aikido in their activities: trainings, workshops, coaching, therapy
    • an agenda of activities and events organized by Applied Aikido professionals
    • an eShop to order DVD’s, books and other tools and products related to Applied Aikido
  • develop a network of professionals, experts, trainers and coaches who are developing approaches or using applied aikido elements in their trainings and professional activities
  • organize conferences to meet and share our practices. These conferences will be offered locally (in your region, your country) and globally (to gather and meet from all over the world)
