About Chokushin Aiki Jujutsu

In today's day and age, many of us are blessed to live in a part of the world that is not torn by war and violence. Unfortunately, that is not true for all beings on the planet today. The study of Chokushin Aiki Jujutsu is a paradox of activity. On one hand, we embrace the ancient feudal combat art but on the other hand, we strive to live in peace and harmony at all times. We believe that through intense physical training we will develop deep internal peace. We strive to cut away our illusions by running the gauntlet and walking the fire of regular training. From the core of our peaceful, aware being, we will ultimately expand to influence our family, community, town, city country and the world.

The study of Chokushin represents the practice of an ancient form of Japanese martial combat. It was specifically designed to deal with single and multiple attackers in life and death struggles. It is not a sport, it is not a controlled interaction between two opponents, it is the strategic application of awareness and technique to meet a specific combat conclusion. There are no trophies, no second place ribbons and no cheering crowd.

In the early phases of practice, we train to enhance our body awareness and avoid strikes and grabs through the skillful application of body motions. As training continues, the style includes a variety of counter measures such as throws, projections, strikes, locks, chokes, dislocations and pressure point attacks.

Our ultimate goal is to increase our physical and technical ability, amplify our awareness and to be in balance with whatever comes our way. The challenge is to deal with all that in a way that is positive, developmental and supports peace in the world.

Such is the paradox of Chokushin Aiki Jujutsu, we study and practice an ancient form of feudal combat in an attempt to have balance in our daily lives and to spread peace in the world.
