Nihon Goshin Aikido is a non competitive, defensive, traditional Japanese Martial Art utilizing circular principles of movement, combined with joint locks, throws, and immobilizations.
The art does not require strength to muster a successful defense against any conceivable attack, and it is appropriate for all ages 13 and up.
Training is conducted in a welcoming, cooperative, and friendly training environment which fosters self confidence, and allows participants to train safely and with confidence. Students will learn how to "follow" the lead of their training partner/ attacker and utilize the attacker's own strength and intention against him.
Cooperative training is a hallmark of aikido training where the attacker gives an agreed upon attack, and then only mildly resists the technique to avoid injury. Ultimately, students will learn to defend themselves against an infinite array of modern martial attacks while minimizing or limiting potential injury to their attacker.
Please come to a class to observe and/or experience Nihon Goshin Aikido first hand.
Jon Wilson at an Aikido Demonstration in
The demonstration in the video above was conducted by Shihan Richard Bowe, and many of his highest ranking black-belt instructors. Video was shot some time in the early 80's. The video was shared with Sensei Jim Giorgi by Sensei Jose del Cristo Garrido, the attacker in the hooded knife attack sequence.
This video marks the the only time I have seen Shihan Bowe in action, so it is especially meaningful. Join me in thanking both Senseis Garrido and Giorgi for sharing the video with a larger audience.
