Ki principles class
The study of the most important fundamental: "Ki"
In the Ki principles class, you will learn to relax through correct
posture in daily life. This is the basis of Ki-Aikido.
To correctly relax means the most comfortable and stable posture
with a calm mind. Everyday, students experience this, and check
it through Ki tests with a classmate.
If you master correct relaxation, you will be able to use the
great power that is naturally yours. This is important to being
Ki-Aikido instructor, but this is also applicable to any work
You will learn to respect others minds through Ki-Aikido.
In your daily life, you might have experienced that even if
you ask others to do something, others do not do what you expected.
This is because you ignore the others' mind and you have selfish
mind. If you respect anothers mind and try to do it together
then others will follow you gladly.
In your daily life, you seldom throw others with an Aikido technique.
If you learn to relax, you will know others minds and you can
lead others without problem. You can learn human communication
||Three parts of studying
Tohei gakuen's classes are divided into three main topics; Ki
principles, Ki-Aikido and cultural study (tea ceremony and calligraphy).
In the Ki principles class, you will learn Ki principles themselves.
In the Ki-Aikido class, you will learn Ki principles through
Ki-Aikido. In the cultural study class, you will learn Ki principles
from a different angle.
Learning Ki principles through Tea ceremony and calligraphy
In tea ceremony class, you will learn seiza or correct sitting
posture. If you do seiza, your posture becomes good and your
mind becomes calm naturally. You will be able to master the procedure
for making tea. Also, you can learn manners for receiving tea
as a guest.
In the calligraphy class, you will learn Ki principles through
calligraphy. Many people think that it is important to have a
natural talent to write good calligraphy, but this is wrong.
By using Ki, anyone can write unique calligraphy. The purpose
of this class is to write calligraphy with Ki. After two years
study of calligraphy, you will write a scroll type of calligraphy
as a graduation memento.
