Tobikomi Keiko


For all Aikidoists who can not take a month off!

What Is Tobikomi Keiko?

The main purposes of Tobikomi Keiko are to learn and widen your repertoire of skills and/or to deepen your thought process by visiting and practicing at Dojos whose teaching styles are different from yours. The literal translation of “Tobikomi Keiko” is “Dive-in Practice”. It’s a traditional Japanese way to practice.

Ground Rules:

Participating Aikidoists will not need to tell us who they are currently affiliated with, and Nippon Kan will not ask anyone such a question. In general, any Aikidoist at the level of the 3rd Kyu and above can participate. However, any participant will be expected to be physically able to endure tough physical fitness training. Please refer to the video clip(s) for the types of physical training participants are expected to go through.

It’s strongly suggested to join the “Summer Keiko (Practice) Marathon” during this period, if at all possible.
