Aikido is a way to unify mind and body to understand the law of the universe. It is a way to respect the harmony of nature. We train to purify ourselves, to strengthen our muscles, bones, and to control the flow of life energy within our bodies. Kodokai Aikido was founded by Shihan Minoru Oshima in 1990. Currently he conducts classes at the headquarters located in Temecula, California. In order to find a Kodokai Aikido dojo, please click Kodokai Aikido International.
