Competitive Aikido:

Lest we forget, there is indeed a school of competitive aikido. Tomiki, who was a world-class Judo player (trained under Kana), had the notion of applying the sport principles of Judo to Aikido as a way of making it more popular and accessible. As a result, there are two broad categories of Tomiki ryu today. One is the competitive, "sport" version, often called "Shodokan Aikido" and the other is systems such as Fugakakai and KiHara.


If you're working too hard, you're doing it wrong.
