Harmony in Movement

Aikido with mind and body coordination

Aikido is a system for:

Learning about your body
Exploring conflict safely
Discovering your innate energy
Finding and spreading peace
Harmonising with natural laws
Facing your inner self

Learn and practice aikido with mind body coordination in Auckland, New Zealand.


Using the mind and body together  creates stability and strength, and taps into hidden reserves of power. It is an approach that bypasses intellect, and enables one to learn by feeling and experience.


Harmony with Subtle Energy (Ki), when translated to relationships and conflict situations, provides felt strategies for maintaining self-power while influencing others for mutual benefit. 


Do means a Way, a lifetime pursuit, exploration, and mastery of any technique - art, writing, martial arts - that eventually gives insight into one's essential self, and an abiding sense of peace and love.
