Aikido styles

Originally aikido was only one school, where its founder Morihei Ueshiba taught and where members of his family continued to teach. This is called the Hombu style, which means headquarters. As time passed, Ueshiba’s senior students created their own different styles. For example, the Tomeki style, a fusion of aikido and judo, emphasizes competitive practices. Other formal styles include the Yoshinkai, Ki Society, and Iwama.

I recently returned from a three week instructor training in a chi gung practice called “Gods Playing in the Clouds”. This intensive was held at Menlo College near San Francisco and I’d like to share some details about my experience.
