Ei Mei Kan

Aikido and Dojo

The practice of Aikido at Ei Mei Kan is traditional Aikikai-style Aikido, which traces its lineage by direct personal transmission from the Founder of the Art, through his apprenctice and personal student T.K. Chiba, 8th Dan Shihan, to the Chief Instructor of Ei Mei Kan, Chris Mooney, 7th Dan Shihan.

Martial arts training reaches far beyond the dojo. Now, in swordsmanship, three things are necessary in order to triumph in any encounter: timing, distance and the centre-line. My question to all martial artists is, in the broader picture of our society, how is our timing? - Christopher Mooney Shihan
