September new student special: new students completing a month of practice, begun in September, may opt to receive a free practice uniform!
Aikido Kokikai is a modern Japanese martial art using the momentum and reflexes of an attacker to evade and neutralize the attack. It does not rely on physical strength so it is well suited to people of all ages and sizes. Its principles for effective self defense technique apply equally well to resolving conflicts and living life well. Practice will develop your grace, flexibility, confidence, stamina, coordination and calmness. Join experienced and compassionate instructor Barbara Litt! Classes are for adults and youth (age 13 and older). Parent-child pairs may practice with instructor approval.
Barbara Litt, head instructor of Aikido Kokikai Pittsburgh, 5th dan, has taught Aikido at the WSCC since 1997. She began Aikido in 1988 in Princeton, NJ, and is now a senior student of Sensei Shuji Maruyama, of Nagoya, Japan, whom she sees several times a year, usually in the US. She teaches Aikido because the art has improved her life immeasurably and she wants to share this. Besides, it’s really fun! She has also taught Japanese language and culture in public schools and currently at Carnegie Mellon University.
