mizunokokoro-patch4-webszWelcome to the Mizu no Kokoro Aikikai!

Mizu no Kokoro is a Japanese concept translated as “A mind/heart like water.” More specifically it is often taken as “A mind like still water,” referring to a state of mind which allows one to calmly reflect on life and its trials. We at Mizu no Kokoro Aikikai (“a gathering of Aikidoka”) cultivate this mindset as we train in the Way of Aikido while exploring the other aspects of a mind like water, its strength, flow, quickness and stillness. In the style of Aikido practiced here, there are no competitions. We all work to strengthen each other’s practice. As one instructor puts it, “like sharpening stones and steel.”

Mizu no Kokoro Aikikai practices at the Dixie Farm Business Park, 15255 Gulf Fwy, 140-D, Houston, TX 77034

Please join us for good, solid Aikido practice and the comradeship of those who move along the Way!

New Class

We are continuing to work on our class schedules.  Currently there are beginner Aikido classes offered on Monday and Wednesday at 6 pm to 7 pm, followed by intermediate and advanced Aikido classes running until 9 pm.

We are now offering beginner Aikido class on Tuesday!  From 6:30-7:30pm.  Beginners (and others) may participate in any beginner class that fits their schedule.  Once the beginner and the instructors agree (usually after their 7th Kyu test – the first test, but as soon as the beginner can safely fall), students can participate in any or all classes for the standard fee.

We are also working on children’s classes on Monday and Wednesday beginning at 5:30pm and running until 6pm.  If you are interested, please come by and watch a class and talk to the instructors.

Stay tuned for additional offerings!
