WELCOME ON AIKIKAI-ZÜRICH!

Update 02.01.2021

Dear Aiki-Kai members

We hope you were able to spend some restful and joyful holidays and wish you all a good start into the new year.

With the federal measures in effect to contain the Covid 19 pandemic on December 18, 2020, we will not be able to resume our keikos together in the dojo in the new year for the time being. Nevertheless, in order to start the new aikido year with you, we will hold an online keiko from Monday to Thursday starting next week (Monday, January 4, 2021). The schedule for this is as follows:

– Monday, 18:00-19:20: Michi G
– Tuesday, 19:40-21:00: Ivo
– Wednesday, 18:00-19:20: Rolf
– Thursday, 19:40-21:00: Dani

You can visit these keikos via Zoom, with the following link: https://zoom.us/j/99036898445?pwd=UTRwQXk3NlFCR3Z4c1kxditHc082dz09
(New Link)
Be there at least 5 minutes before the start.

The federal measures are valid for the time being until January 22, 2021. What the following time will bring, we will see and inform you as soon as possible about any changes.

With best regards on behalf of the board and the TK,
Bruno, Ivo, Michi G

Update 12.11.2020

Dear Aikidoka of the Aiki-Kai Zurich

We hope you and your loved ones are doing well.

We are navigating together well through this difficult time so far and thank you for your support in sharing our protection concepts!

On Friday, December 11, 2020, the Swiss Federal Council has decided on further restrictions to fight the Covid-19 pandemic. These also affect our dojo and require us to revise our protection concept and the modalities of our training operations again.

In order to prepare this well we have therefore decided to start the Christmas break a week earlier. Starting next Monday, December 14, 2020, our dojo will be closed until January 4. During this time, contrary to tradition, there will also be no Weih-ki-do.

In the meantime we will discuss our plans for the start of the new year. You will hear from us soon.

We wish you, despite all these aggravating circumstances, joyful and relaxing holidays!

With best regards, in the name of TK and board of directors
Bruno, Ivo, Michi G.


Dear members of the Aiki-Kai Zurich,

due to the changed conditions and the partly sparsely visited Keiko, we in TK decided to reduce the Keiko offer. Please note the new timetable, valid from 02.11.2020 and the updated protection concept / rules of conduct.

Dear Aikidoka, dear members of the Aiki-Kai Zurich

With the Federal Council resolution of 28 October 2020, further restrictions have recently been imposed on public life and sport. However, we can still maintain our Keiko. However, we have to resume some restrictions. As of today, Thursday, October 29, 2020, the following applies in our dojo:

* We practice contactless and exclusively in the assigned and marked mat areas.
* When entering the building, masks are compulsory until you have reached the assigned mat areas.
* Before, during and after the Keiko we have to provide sufficient ventilation, but we are allowed to practice without a mask.
* With these adjustments the maximum number of Aikidoka in the Dojo is limited to 10 persons including Sensei.

We will decide on a correspondingly adapted protection concept and possible adjustments to the schedule in the next few days. For short-term arrangements you are welcome to contact your main teacher.
If you want to read up, you will find the legal basis in the draft of the Federal Council regulation at the BAG or somewhat more easily understandable in the explanation from the BASPO.

Best regards on behalf of the Board and the TK

Ivo, Bruno and Michi G.

What is Aikido?

Aikido is a Japanese martial art for self-defense against armed and unarmed attackers. In contrast to other martial arts, Aikido’s prime goal is to neutralize the aggressive situation without harming the attacker.

The basis of this principle of “non-violence” is contained in the art’s name

AI – harmony, KI – energy, DO – way

which aims at emptying oneself completely to reach a state of mental sensitivity, where all surrounding energies are in perfect harmony.

Aikido is an exceptional exercising framework where physical and mental energies are balanced through continuous practice so as to cultivate personal peace of mind.

Aikido includes various forms of throwing and pinning to control the attacker similar to Judo. These Aikido movements can be accompanied by strikes to the vital points – as in Karate. Although Aikido seems harmonious and harmless to the un-trained observer, Aikido techniques correctly applied are highly effective.

Aikido is Budo!

(Translated and adapted from Aikido – Methode Nationale. Nobuyoshi Tamura. 1975. pp.  17-18)
