Because aikido emphasizes evasion and circular/spiral redirection of an attacker’s aggressive force into throws, pins and immobilizations as a primary strategy rather than punches and kicks, it works for everyone. We pride ourselves in being able to provide high quality instruction in Baltimore Aikido as one of the top instructors of martial arts in Baltimore.

The primary strategic foundations of Aikido are:

  1. Moving into a position off of the line of attack
  2. Seizing control of the attacker’s balance by means of leverage and timing
  3. Applying a throw, pin, or other sort of immobilization (such as a wrist/arm lock)

Strikes (atemi) are not absent altogether from the strategic arsenal of the Aikidoist, but their use is primarily (though not exclusively) as a means of distraction. A strike is delivered in order to provoke a reaction from the aggressor, creating a window of opportunity, facilitating the application of a throw, pin, or other immobilization.

My training in Kinokawa Aikido has been one of the most influential experiences of my life. Real and honest budo training has allowed be to become thoughtfully calm and patient in my everyday experiences. Effortless and unexpected power are now regular companions of my being. It is a true honor to share this amazing martial art with the people who choose to show up on the mat week after week and year after year. I look welcome anyone who would like to live with more grace to stop by roll around on the mat with us.
