Moriyama Gymnasium, Isahaya-Shi, Nagasaki Pref.
Thank you for visiting to our website of our Moriyama Class of Aikido.
We practice at Moriyama-cho, Isahaya-shi, Nagasaki-pref, near from Aino-cho. There are several schools of Aikido, and our school is "Shinshin Toitsu" Aikido, that was established by Mr. Koichi Tohei. (from now, Mr. is replaced as Soushu & Sensei for his respect.)
1. About Shinshin Toitsu Aikido
Soushu Koichi Tohei Sensei mentioned as follows.
"Both mind and body are given by Universe to us in order to maintain our lives. Body is moved according to mind, and mind can be kept by using body. Therefore, both cannot be seperated. It is not possible to maintain our lives only by either of them. Best performance is achieved only when both of them are integrated as one, and our real lives can show vitality best.
Please refer to the link from headquarter for detail information.
2. Principle of our class
Purpose of our training is to integrate mind and body in daily life described above and repeat some trainings that we can experience existence of "ki". Integration of mind and body is not ultimate "purpose" but only "mean". The important thing is to become one with Universe. Human beings are, originally, part of great nature. In order to live positively and healthy with our lives performed best, it is most important to realize existene of "ki" and have positive way of life. In other words, our lives should be based on absolute rule of universe that is not changed.
