The "reasons" that you use to hold your belief systems in place are the bars on the very prison cell that you are using reason to attempt to escape. ~ Jim Giorgi

"Living an integral life means “getting it together” and being “together” rather than being and feeling fragmented. It means thinking, feeling and acting always out of the certainty of your wholeness and never acting out of a sense of disconnection or lack."

"Integral Aikido: Ki, Aiki, and Taisabaki"

In my seminar “Integral Aikido: Ki, Aiki and Taisabaki”, we explore the essence and scientific foundations of aikido practice, learning how to sense and direct the flow of ki into every movement, how to perform the essential elements of “Aiki”- Proper gaze, proper breathing, proper distance, proper balance, and proper follow-through - and how to move properly so as to harmonize with an attack, effortlessly redirect it and neutralize it. The information in this seminar presents a clear, scientifically-based understanding of practically applicable aikido principles that is unmatched by any other aikido curriculum currently available.  These principles are included in my forthcoming book “Nihon Goshin Aikido: The Art and Science of Self-Defense”.

Nihon Goshin Aikido:

“Where self-defense is a science, not a sideline”.

Its skills are founded in scientific principles of physics, geometry, anatomy and biomechanics.

 To laugh often and love much;

To win the respect of intelligent persons and the affection of children;

To earn the approval of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false friends;

To appreciate beauty;

To find the best in others;

To give of one’s self without the slightest thought of return;

 To have accomplished a task, whether by a healthy child, a rescued soul, a garden patch or a redeemed social condition;

To have played and laughed with enthusiasm and sung with exultation;

To know that even one life has breathed easier because you have lived;

 This is to have succeeded.
