Our goal is to promote Aikido’s fundamental principles and make them accessible and easily applicable to people all over the world, especially Youth – through our Public Schools Initiative.
This is a community-driven project, and we hope to be a part of building relationships between local Dojos and local Public Schools. As you will see in the film, people do not need to step on a mat to begin exploring and applying the physiological components of Aikido.
In his wishes, Aikido’s founder expressed that the Art of Peace is accessible to everyone, regardless of their culture, age, or social status. In presenting Aikido’s principles through the use of operational language, anyone can begin practicing the functional, physiological building blocks of conflict resolution and peacemaking.
This is the true work of Aikido – to continuously share its tools for learning, self-improvement, and empowerment with people across the world.
