Conditions to become Applied Aikido Professional member

As this network is in its initial phase, we opted to be open and form-less.
We will not be very strict in the definition of the criteria to become a member of AAA.
We just want to ask you to answer these questions and if you recognize yourself as being “part of the adventure”, then go on…

  • Are you familiar with the Aiki principles and its ethics ?
  • When you mention Aikido, is it more than the metaphor of not opposing with the energy of the attack ?
  • Do you or did you practice Aikido ?
  • Is Aikido more than a “simple” martial art practice, more than a “self-defense” technique ?

These are some of the important questions we’d like to ask you if you want to apply for becoming an Applied Aikido Professional (AAP).


In this begin phase we do not intend to setup a committee that will approve or reject your request. If your description is clearly showing you are a AAp (Applied Aikido professional), if it is confirmed by what we can read on your website or social network links, then welcome

In case of any doubt, we ask to the members their advice (peer recognition).
If you feel you are an AAP, you inevitably have contacts with other persons in the world of training or of aikido.
We could ask you (if we do not know you) to ask a recommandation from another AAP.
If you don’t know any other AAP, then send us a description of your practice with preferably a video showing what you do. We accept the risk of accepting people who are not fully AAP’s.
We believe that the group’s dynamics will inevitably help to identify potential false-AAP’s
