 The Five Principles of HAI KI Aikido
At our dojo, we base aikido on five principles. These principles are guidelines for helping us to learn. Aikido is not just set of techniques. It is a martial art through which we learn to balance our own mind and body and to be in balance and harmony with the world. These principles point us beyond technique to the core of aikido.

Below are videos with examples of each of the five principles.

Be centered and on balance

Extended mind, heavy body
