A human being consists of a mind and a body that are meant to work together as one. This is called mind and body unification. When we unify our mind and body, our innate human abilities emerge. The Ki Society teaches students how to unify mind and body through several programs of instruction.
In Ki Development class students learn in detail how to unify mind and body, to help them create the happy, healthy, and successful life they want to have. In addition to the class, students are encouraged to build a personal program of training using Ki Breathing and Ki Meditation methods, and Ki Exercises for Health. learn more
Before a person moves, living energy, or Ki, is sent in the direction they want to go. By unifying mind and body, a person can sense this movement and respond to it, rather than the movement of an opponent's body. The opponent is then easily led. This reading of Ki, followed by the leading of Ki, can be used in everyday life to eliminate conflict, and perform to the best of our ability regardless of circumstances.
By learning to unify mind and body at an early age, Ki-Aikido and Ki Development give children a foundation they can rely on for a lifetime of positive growth. In a physically active and cooperative learning environment, children learn the martial art of Ki-Aikido. As they grow, they learn how to apply these lessons to all activities: school, play, sports, and relationships.
Living energy, or Ki, flows strongly in a healthy body. This flow is weaker in a body that has become weakened due to illness, injury, or overuse. By unifying mind and body we can use the techniques of Kiatsu to restore that flow in ourselves, or in another person, and thereby activate the body's natural healing processes.
