100 Pillars Aikido: Supporting Aikido practice and innovation in the 21st Century.
We believe there are common "core principles" throughout all styles of Aikido. We further recognize the valid diversity in style, methodology, and organizational structures.
100 Pillars is a meeting ground and support network for all styles and affiliations of Aikido practitioners involved in the continuous process of discovering the meaning and application of Aiki. We offer an opportunity for peer review, dojo and individual support, and meaningful methods for promotion of advanced rank across stylistic lines.
100 Pillars is structured as an open source community, built on the idea that "all of us, are smarter than any of us." We are committed to assuring that the core principles that are the learning objectives of our members are also the operational practices of the organization.
All members and associated dojo are wholly independent, but have access to curricula, services, and other resources that they can access, adopt, or revise for their independent use at their own discretion.
