What is Living Aikido Life?

What is Living Aikido Life?
A documentary about a Martial Art? A collection of interviews about the Art of Peace? An essential learning tool for healing and peacemaking?
A possible roadmap for being a decent human being, living in a state of mutual respect with the rest of the world? A parenting treasure for those of us under the stress of raising children while having to maintain our center and composure?
An insight into history and tradition? An ambitious project to offer students around the world a window into a path of conflict resolution as they take on the world? A moment of meditation and contemplation?
105 minutes filled with “A_HA” moments? YES! All of that, and much, much more.
Living Aikido Life is a project build like a musical instrument; parts of it will resonate perfectly with who you are now. Parts of it will resonate with others. As you explore, you might change, and so will its meaning to the new you.
Living Aikido Life is a symphony of thoughts, gently guiding one’s mind into a journey of embodied power, softly playing the music of our dreams and hopes for a peaceful future.
When everything rushes madly between tasks and chores, this film slows down time, and invites into a world of introspection, personal growth, and transformation.
