Cross-referencing each other
to obtain new contracts.
Develop synergies and cooperations.
Improve our expertise.

a young association
You know the eternal question of the egg and the chicken. If you wait, our association will never grow. We need you to put our structure in place, to offer a full agenda of workshops, to set up a world conference, to pay for commercials on social networks.
Applied Aikido Association is a young association, we are motivated to organize exciting events, promote your activities on social networks and put a professional platform at your disposal. We’ll develop it according to your feedback and requests. For this we need your support through donations and/or membership.
Applied Aikido Association is born in 2018. We started this initiative after many exchanges with professionals applying aikido in their field of expertise.
They all agree that Applied Aikido is not known enough. Each time they have to explain that Applied Aikido is not a singular practice they propose in isolation. Many trainers and coaches are proposing similar approaches around the world. Moreover aikido is often quoted in communication, self-help and even in leadership trainings but most of the time it is limited to presenting aikido as a metaphor.
However aikido has so much more to offer. As a bodily practice first. If Emotional Intelligence is now recognized as an important lever in our professional and private life, Somatic Intelligence is more and more present. The body is regaining its place in our society. And aikido is about harmonizing these 3 intelligences from the body, our emotions and our mind.
The philosophy of aikido is also a critical element. We live in a culture dominated by competition and compounded individualism. Winning without defeating the adversary, finding new cooperation mode, developing new leadership styles are some of the urgent needs of our society.
In view of the above we decided to create an organization for professionals motivated to develop their own approaches based on applied aikido and this way contributing to push the recognition of Applied Aikido as a field of study, as such.
This way we will reach the “critical mass” of dedicated professionals and facilitate the introduction of Applied aikido in many different domains.
We intend to become a central platform to offer a wide range of workshops, coaching or conferences to our prospects and put all Applied aikido in contact to nurture synergies, cooperations or common developments.
