Join us for a special Saturday seminar with Judy Minot, one of Kokikai’s high-ranking instructors.

Kokikai Aikido offers an ethical form of self defense. In Kokikai we learn to respond to an attack with calmness, self-control, and centeredness. The more calm and relaxed we are, the better we are able to defeat our attacker. In most cases we can choose to neutralize and control the attacker without harming them. When we learn to respond to conflict by being calm and relaxed, it affects our daily lives in a very positive way!

Judy Minot is small of stature, and exemplifies the Kokikai idea that men and women of all sizes and ages can be strong without using “muscle power”. She began practicing in 1994 while in her mid 30s, with no athletic or martial arts experience. Now holding the rank of 4th dan she has been an instructor for 18 years, and was dojo leader at Rutgers University until 2015. (Aikido Kokikai Berlin chief instructor Steven Syrek was one of her early students there.)

Don’t miss this one-of-a-kind opportunity to learn from a highly experienced Kokikai instructor! This seminar is appropriate for beginners and advanced students.
