Austin Ki Society

Who we are

The Austin Ki Society was founded in 1983 and dedicated to teaching the principles of mind and body coordination through Ki and Aikido. The teaching methods are those taught by Soshu Koichi Tohei, founder of the Ki Society International.  

Tohei Sensei established Shin Shin Tōitsu Dō (心身統一道) which means "the way of realizing the [original] unity of mind and body" as well as the martial discipline Shin Shin Tōitsu Aikidō (心身統一合氣道) often referred to as Ki-Aikido.  He believed that the practice of these arts and disciplines offered a path for long term self-development and cultivated harmonious action and oneness of mind and body, both in the context of physical conflict, and in daily life.
