The Arun Aikido Club
Aiki Peace Week!

Master Morihei Ueshiba O-Sensei - Founder of Aikido

In 2001, the United Nations declared September 21st as an International Day of Peace. On that day, every year, there are ceasefires in hundreds of conflicts around the world. Many organizations worldwide celebrate that day with thousands of peace day events, benefit concerts, and other events to focus the world's attention on love, peace and harmony.

International Aiki Peace Week allows members of the Aikido community to take part in the global celebration of peace, and offer Morihei Ueshiba's remarkable vision to the world.

A week of peace-focused teaching is offered as many Aikido associations, organisations do not have classes every day, and may not be able to put on an event on September 21st.

This gives us, at the Arun Aikido Club, a unique opportunity to increase public awareness of Aikido as a joyful practice of harmony, compassion, and non-violence. We offer unique classes to the community that teach aiki principles to manage conflict and prevent violence.

Training fees and donations for the Aiki Peace Week will be sent to Aiki Extensions who organise the events. They are a non-profit organisation founded in 1998, and dedicated to passing on and applying aiki principles outside of traditional martial arts training.

Members have applied Aiki principles in such areas as business, bodywork, psychotherapy, teaching, mediation, conflict resolution, and sports.

Tony Wilden, who founded the Arun Aikido Club in Bognor Regis in 1992, is a member of Aiki Extensions and committed to offering the community the unique art of Aikido. This is our 7th year of hosting a unique seminar as part in the peace celebration. We have raised hundreds of pounds for a worthy cause. We invite YOU to join us and celebrate peace!
