About Ki Aikido Scotland
The club is very welcoming to beginners, who are encouraged to drop in to have a go.
We are an independent Ki Aikido club, training according to the principles of SHIN SHIN TOITSU DO (unification of mind and body) and SHIN SHIN TOITSU AIKIDO (Aikido with mind and body unified) as taught by Sensei Koichi Tohei.
The club has had a long and rich history. Consistently teaching to a high standard, many students have attained the rank of black belt, and gone on to teach Aikido themselves.
Originally organised in 1967 as extra training time for the Hamilton Hill Aikido Club, the first Aikido dojo in Scotland, the East Kilbride club quickly grew in numbers and established an identity of its own.
The club has had a number of influences throughout it's development. Having been affiliated with the Aikikai of Great Britain, under Sensei Kazuo Chiba, and Ki No Kenyukai, under Sensei Koichi Tohei (through the Ki Federation of Great Britain), the instruction at the club represents a deep and wide understanding of the principles of Aikido and mind/body unification.
In 1984 the club left the Ki Federation and therefore the Ki No Kenyukai. Since that time the club has remained unaffiliated with any governing Aikido organisation and continues to teach to a high standard the principles of SHIN SHIN TOITSU DO(unificaton of mind and body) and SHIN SHIN TOITSU AIKIDO (Aikido with mind and body unified) as taught by Sensei Koichi Tohei.
The club was established over 40 years ago by Sensei Matt Tennant who is still the chief instructor, bringing his wide experience and understanding of Aikido to training.
Our training emphasises the application of "mind-body co-ordinated" principles to daily life, to promote relaxation and confidence, as well as to Aikido techniques.
A spirit of mutual co-operation allows an environment in which each individual can continuously improve and refine their techniques to ensure that they work practically.
All members train to a high level. We have relatively few gradings, preferring to focus on improving our Aikido rather than concentrate on passing gradings.
