Aikido at Kakushi Toride Aikido Kakushi Toride Aikido 2 Photo

Beginners learn a condensed and simplified set of movements integral to aikido while studying the aspects of attack that create the "aiki resolution".

Intermediate and advanced students then learn and practice how to support and protect the attacker as his intention brings him to the ground.

Our advanced practice is always jiuwaza practice, that is, a technique is never prescribed. In the role of uke, our students cultivate the ability to initiate and maintain authentic attacking intention so as to create a more realistic response to nage's actions, and therefore a more realistic representation of the effectiveness of those actions in creating a transformative experience.

Style — Ki-based.

Instructors:

  • chief instructor: Corky Quakenbush, 2nd dan;
  • assistant instructors: Rene Galindo & Steven Bryson.
