The KIAI is the Aikido Institute's official blog, consisting of articles, announcements and other postings from dojo members. The KIAI was originally a paper newsletter, founded by Howard Hoa Newens Sensei during his tenure as dojo-cho of our dojo. It started in it's early format in 1995. (Currently, some of the early issues are missing from our collection!). It was remixed into this blog starting in April 2017..
Part of the idea is that reflecting and writing about Aikido furthers and strengthens our practice. We welcome articles and other works from all dojo members and from others as well (send us a note below!).
