Our Rhode Island dojo was founded at the direciton of Shuji Maruyama Sensei, the founder and president Aikido Kokikai International.
The word dojo (dō-jō) means "a room or hall to train together." We are dojo in this sense. But in a greater sense our dojo is a community of martial artists dedicated to our art and to each other's progress.
Elements of Training
There are five core elements to Kokikai training that include open hands self-defense, weapons defense, weapons practice, and components of 'Ki' development.

These principles also apply in daily life.
