AIKIDO is a unique Japanese martial art that promotes health and harmony
with the universe and its power (KI). I am a
devoted long-time practitioner of Aikido.
About me- I
am trained in Japanese Martial Arts for over 30 years,
including 8 years in various styles of KARATE (mostly Goju-Ryu)
and over 20 years of AIKIDO practice (Aikikai), holding a rank
of "4-Dan" (Black belt) and an instructors certificate
institute", Israel). My practice career includes training,
instructing & managing a small branch Dojo for about 10 years
(2002-2009). I am also experienced in previously instructing Aikido to company
My unique style: Over my years of practice I have come to
develope a very unique style and understanding of Aikido, as most practitioners
do. I combine a healthy and peacful self awareness, sword awareness (Japanese sword) and effectivness in combat.
I am a believer in Aikido as a practice of communication: with our mind and body (self awareness), with our partners/opponents, and with the environment (universe). I do not believe in being merely mechanical but in projecting a true intention (heart and mind) in every move. I do not believe that defining "correct technique" will contribute to a more effective practice!
