I recently posted a thread asking the difference between Kokikai vs Aikikai. I didn't expect anyone to tell me one was better than the other but I was hoping for someone to post about difference in power between the two styles. Well I have found out for myself. I am lucky I have the energy to sit up and type, my body is drained like I have never felt before. I'm not gonna be the one to say it, well, maybe I will. Aikikai is way more "physical" than the Kokikai dojo I was at . It's practiced like a martial art rather than a dance with no music. To me Kokikai seems as if they're trying to learn to throw with magic as opposed to technique. I am very happy that I made the switch. Don't get me wrong my Kokikai dojo was great but I think to be a great Aikidoka you need a balance of Ki and good technique and I felt I was praticing Ki exercises more times than actually learning Aikido techniques. Before anyone starts to leave the comments about Tohei Sensei and the other great Ki society senseis I am fully aware of their greatness, I'm just a guy writing a blog voicing my opinion.
