Hey all, just thought I should introduce myself, since I'm a newbie and all.

I'm 22 Canadian, and I am currently training in a mixture of Aikido, Jui-Jitsu, Oyama, Kyukoshinkai, and Tae Kwon Do (Iron fist)

Just treat me like one of the guys. :rolleyes: And if you come into the dojo, please please hit me like I'm a guy.

Welcome! Sounds like quite a mixture. So you must be training in something at least every day.:)

My meal is called Jui Do Kai, it's a really even mixture of the above mentioned arts. Thank You all so much for the welcome!

And for the most part I train three times a week, two hours a day. But the mental training is constant.

Not sure I want to hit you, you sound much more dangerous than me!

How are the different arts integrated? It sounds very interesting, if rather challenging.

I know this won't help much, but evenly. :D So hard to explain, Um, if you took the strong points of each, and balled them all together, like the most effective strikes, locks, throws from each style, then you'd be getting close. It's something you'd just have to see I guess. I'll work on a better example for you.

Someone help me out. Wouldn't it be that an even blend of all those arts would be a new art? I know a group in a nearby city that practices 5 or 6 martial arts but they train and rank in them separately. All these arts are so big in themselves and take a lifetime to master, it seems to me that an even blend would be a small part of each and thus a new art.
Best,

I'll help you out, yes it is a new art. :)

It is recognized by the federation. The founders each held multiple black belts in the previous mentioned styles, and found a beautiful way to combine their knowledge, and create a very effective art.

Does that answer your question? :ai:

Yes,
Thanks. I guess my point was that Aikido as an art is more than the raw techniques but it is also the way they are applied including the body movement, philosophy, etc. Also, it is a training which has an internally consistent way of moving as an example. As a budo, it can also have various internal applications in a person's life.The other arts you mentioned art the same. It might be more accurate to say that you are part of an art called Jui Do Kai that uses techniques from Aikido, Jui-Jitsu, Oyama, Kyukoshinkai, and Tae Kwon Do. I am suggesting that there is no even blend of those arts. Just a mixing of techniques from those arts. I don't know about the other arts but it may be a question if Aikido can be "blended " in one person with many other "Arts" and still be Aikido.
Best wishes and welcome to the forum!

Kathy,

"Jui Do Kai" sounds very close to "Jukokai". Are they by any chance the same?

I understand what you are saying, and I'm not saying you are wrong. Aikido is something different to everyone, because we all have different perceptions. The spiritual side or philosophies of Aikido to me, is the same as the Tao, and therefore by precendent, seperate from Aikido, but part of it nonetheless, as Aikido evolved from Tao. :circle: Many of the internal applications of Aikido are not unique to Aikido.

:) You may be right in suggesting that it would be more accurate to say we use a mixture of techniques. But personally, I spend extra time with my Sensei (who is also my husband) on just Aikido. (As well as a few of the others) So for me to say it is an even blend, is not untrue, it is Jui Do Kai to my experience, and from my perspective.

When he teaches the students Aikido techniques, he teaches us to blend and see from the attackers view etc. He also teaches that these moves are not meant to harm, though they can, and can quite effectively. He teaches us one point and so on.

I'm not by any means trying to take away from Aikido, or water it down etc, I have the utmost respect for it. Neither is he, and he would do nothing but uphold it's reputation. But for me to accurately describe what it is we do, I would have to go on for weeks. :confused:

Thanks for the good wishes and warm welcome! :D
