About The Event

Evolve for the future. The Boulder Ki Aikido dojo is offering special classes for adults and teens the month of February: the entire month, or any portion, for $20. Classes are Mondays and Wednesdays, 6 - 7:30 p.m.

Ki Aikido is a powerful form of self-defense that does not rely on methods of force-meeting-force, which ultimately only serve to perpetuate the cycles of violence. Instead, through a form that truly blends "martial" and "art," practitioners of Ki Aikido learn to meet conflict boldly from a place of awareness and calmness. Ki Aikido teaches you to redirect negative energy in a way that keeps you safe and also begins to show an attacker/partner more peaceful ways of moving through the world.

The benefits extend way beyond the dojo into our daily lives.

Many people are drawn to Ki Aikido for its graceful, dance-like movements, and it can often be experienced as a form of partner dancing. Practitioners, however, are taught to hold their own centers throughout all movements, a practice that can serve well in many other realms of our daily lives.

The Ki Aikido motto begins: "Let us have a universal mind that loves and protects all creation and helps all things grow and develop...."

What you will learn:

• Grow your confidence through learning self-defense.

• Learn to meet conflict boldly from a place of calmness and redirect it away from you.

• Become more centered in your body.

• Explore ways to become more graceful and embodied.

• Train your mind and body in tandem to experience more focus, peace and relaxation.

See you in February; you don't want to miss this amazing opportunity!

About The Organization

Boulder Ki Aikido Dojo

Ki-Aikido is a defensive martial art seeking the most peaceful and fluid resolution to any type of conflict. Using the natural power of gravity, timing and circular movements, we train to co-ordinate mind and body.

Ki-Aikido is beneficial for everyone regardless of size, age, gender or physical ability.

Going beyond the advantage of learning to defend yourself, Ki-Aikido also helps you to function better in your everyday world, to build confidence, raise your level of physical fitness, as well as teach a new way to handle conflicts and other difficult situations.

Fortunately, most of us will never need the physical combat skills of Aikido outside the dojo. However, our daily lives can be greatly enriched by the calmness and inner strength developed through the practice of Aikido. Many of the Ki development techniques taught in class can be practiced and beneficially applied in the normal course of daily living. Being aware that the study and practice of Ki-Aikido need not be confined to the dojo will enhance your progress and the benefits you obtain. The diligent study of Ki-Aikido can lead to a more vigorous, confident, and spirited way of life.
