Balanced Development of the Whole Person
It may seem paradoxical to include martial arts practice as an important aspect to being a therapist, especially when we think of the martial arts, and words such as, “opponent” “defeat”, and “against” come to mind. However, Aikido differs from disciplines such as karate, tai chi, and even yoga because it emphasizes the importance of blending with your partner.
Aikido offers empowerment to create a peaceful world. In Aikido, students get to practice:
- Centering in the emotional, intellectual and physical realms
- Harmonizing thoughts with others
