Sensei Corky Quakenbush – from Los Angeles/USA – is back in Highgate to teach his unique method. Details as above.

Corky, is the mastermind of a groundbreaking approach to Takemusu Aikido known as AikiLab. A YouTube sensation.His re-invention of the Art – the result of more than thirty years of practice and research – his unique gift for teaching, allied to a friendly and open personality, has led to a growing demand for his teaching world-wide.

In these hands-on presentations, you will understand how certain intentional moves or connections, that channel beneficent intention towards an opponent, lead to a harmonious and harmless resolution of an attack. No Aikido technique, throw, fall or force is strictly necessary!

Whereas most forms of Aikido are taught through the repetitive emulation of stereotyped katas or techniques, throws and falls, AikiLab does not rely on such pre-planning. Its main focus is on the flow of energy arising from the intentions of those involved; in order to develop a presence capable to establish a positive mind connection with an opponent that will lead to a spontaneous, harmless response to an attack – known as an aiki resolution. Seeing is believing …

Imagine having the confidence to skilfully resolve any conflict without violence or victimhood!
Imagine seeing conflict as an opportunity to unite in finding the solution that benefits all!
Imagine your interactions with others being joyous and free!
Imagine true Freedom!
