A path toward harmonizing with the natural flow of the Universe.
"Aikido is not a technique to fight with or defeat an enemy. It is the way to reconcile the world and make human beings one family."
~ Morihei Ueshiba.
A COMMUNITY RESOURCE TEACHING THE ART OF PEACE
As a contemplative martial wisdom path that leads us through non-violence to a peaceful warrior stance in the world, Aikido is a way to train the Body, Mind, and Spirit, to be at peace within oneself and in relation to the world. Powerful as self-defense, it also (and more importantly) teaches us to deal with life’s “attacks” in a way where ultimately, no defense is necessary.
As a Zen Center, Aikido is practiced as a fundamental movement meditation in concert with sitting meditation and contemplative studies.
“Zen” is simply, without religious affiliation, a Japanese term meaning: Contemplation or Meditation.
Two Rivers Aikido utilizes a team approach to leadership. The leadership team is committed to maintaining the tradition of a Code of Honor that also invites each individual to be seen as equal.
