Article: "Kokikai Aikido Club Connects Body, Mind With Self-Defense&
Posted 9/24/2007 2:20pm [from Jun Akiyama]

This article entitled "Kokikai Aikido Club Connects Body, Mind With Self-Defense" lets us follow an MIT student reporter to their first experience with aikido at the MIT Kokikai aikido club. From the article: "Next came the part of the class in which I feared I would get my ass kicked: the fighting. As Kokikai Aikido is a martial art that employs self-defense techniques, we started with two techniques used in response to a punching opponent. The simpler one involved evading the punch, while simultaneously grabbing your opponent and bringing him down. It took me a little while to master, but my partner was considerate of my slow learning curve. She even helped me with my technique so that I could knock her down more easily."
