The Art of the Wooden Staff
|"Aikibojitsu is a beautiful and challenging art form witihin which, through precise and flowing movements with a staff, practitioners explore both the depths of silence and peaks of explosive power. Aikibojitsu is moving meditation, an archetypal call for practitioners to look deeply and directly at existence, alone and with power.
Aikibojitsu is a highly sophisticated and powerful martial art whose real challenge comes down to confrontation with a simple stick of wood. There is no hiding from oneself in this confrontation because the staff is a perfect mirror.
Aikibojitsu is a compelling martial system for even the most experienced martial artist, but it is truly an art form for everyone. People begin study who have no martial background at all, while others who have extensive martial arts experience find Aikibojitsu to be an unusually powerful demonstration of the true power of non-resistance." - Tom Read, Aikibojitsu Founder
