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, 174-B, Houston, TX 77034

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