Richmond Hill Ki-Aikido Club

 

The Ki-Aikido club in Richmond Hill is run by Sensei Narinder Seehra. He is a 3rd Dan Black Belt with the Ki Federation of Great Britain and has been with the Federation since 1995.

In the Art of Ki Aikido there is no aggression, tension or competition. Classes are suitable for all levels of fitness and may be practised equally by men and women of any size, age or ability. The purpose of the practise is to learn to co-ordinate our mind and body through enjoyable exercise which will enhance the quality of our lives.



Ki means “Life Force”, the natural energy common to all living plants and animals.



In today's society many people have a highly pressurized lifestyle which can cause tension, fear and worry. This can create physical ailments such as backache headache, migraine and mental strain. When the mind is disturbed or we have physical tension we withdraw our power. We can learn through the Ki exercises to obtain a calm mind and relaxed body enabling our power to be fully extended. Rather than depend solely on pills or doctors for common ailments we can help ourselves through specific exercises, breathing and meditation and so create a happier life.

Aikido means: “Way of Life to find Harmony with Nature, (Life force)”

Aikido consists of exercises with a partner and all the stretching and exercises come naturally within the individual’s physical limits. These exercises simulate problems in daily life. We learn that force and aggression are useless in dealing with a partner holding you. Physical strength is of no consequence in Aikido. The unique principles in this art are directly applicable to our daily lives. At the same time they give us a practical method of dealing with many problems that we may face. The Richmond Hill Ki-Aikido club is part of the Canadian Ki Federation (www.canadiankifederation.com) which is affiliated to the Ki Federation of Great Britain (www.kifederation.co.uk)
