Aikite is a free flowing martial art that promotes lifelong health and a sense of well being. Aikite is based on koryu bujutsu or old school martial arts. It is a internal martial art with physical and mental training that can be a lifelong benefit.
For hundreds of years, martial arts were used to protect and defend while also creating a healthy mind and body. At first, the focus of training was on the external body with exercises to increase strength and stamina, in time it was discovered that strained training was not as beneficial as a free flowing and relaxed movement along with a sudden burst of speed and power. The explosive nature of this type of training created a fighting method that was very hard to defend against. The relaxed nature of the training allowed for better integration of defensive movements that caused the attacker to be redirected and off-balanced.
