Welcome to the British Ki Society

An interview (in Italian) about the seminar with Shihan Bruno Maule can be seen here:

Dojos in the British Ki Society practise Ki Aikido as developed by the late Doshu Kenjiro Yoshigasaki.

Quotation of the month from All of Aikido:

…. modern life often obliges you to live an unnatural way of life, for example, driving a car, working with a computer, etc. These activities are not natural for your body and create tension and deformation of your body. That is why we need Seitaiho in order to correct those deformations. It is evident that one needs an extraordinary flexibility to perform certain sports or ballet, but it is not necessary for your daily life nor for Aikido practice. so do not stretch your muscles but create a harmonious flexibility by staying in a correct posture until your body relaxes in that posture.
