Aikido is a modern Japanese martial art that emphasizes the use of circular movements to redirect an opponent's energy.

The time has come to make this system of preventative and therapeutic health care open to everyone. The Chi Kung makes a unique contribution to understanding the health and potential that is the natural heritage of every human being.
