IRAN AIKIDO MEISEI KAI Dojo Rules and Regulations
AIKIDO is not a sport. It is a discipline, an educational process for training the mind, body, and spirit. An Aikido dojo is not a gymnasium. It is the place where the way of the discipline is revealed. Physical technique is not the final objective, but a tool for personal refinement and spiritual growth. The correct attitudes of respect, sincerity, and modesty combined with the proper atmosphere are essential to the learning process. And as AIKIDO is a martial way, they are essential to the safety of each individual. The following rules are necessary to the maintenance of this atmosphere and vital to your study of AIKIDO.
“AIKIDO determines life and death in a single strike. For this reason the students must carefully observe what the instructor teaches and not compete to see who is the strongest. AIKIDO is an art that teaches how to stand against multiple opponents. The students must train themselves to be aware of attacks not only from the front, but also from all sides and the back.
