About Us

Rideau Lakes Aikikokan (Rideau Lakes Aikiko School of Aikido or "Harmony Light Academy", Tenno Hikari style) is Aikido from a flowing Zen perspective.  Aikiko Aikido is grounded in original teachings of the founder of Aikido, Morihei Ueshiba, O'Sensei.  We study a variety of mind, body, spirit exercises and self-defense technique training. We practice Aikiko Aikido defensive martial art techniques including with the staff, sword and knife as well as calligraphy and art.

We focus on harmony while exploring the diamond, willow, flowing, air forms within Aikiko Aikido techniques.

In Aikido we blend in a circular and flowing motion with attackers in order to harness their energy and unbalance them. They are then controlled with joint locks, pins and throws. Participants are taught how to safely fall from a throw.

We welcome people interested in studying and practicing along with us.
