Awakening Your Body with Just Four Exercises!

Awaken Your Body with Just Four Exercises Transform your hip joints in all directions!

The preparatory exercises performed before Aikido training are actually derived from "Makkoho Taiso," a health exercise regimen. This practice began in Showa 34 (1959) when the founder of Aikido, Morihei Ueshiba, encountered Wataru Nagai, the founder of Makkoho. Impressed by his teachings and techniques, Ueshiba incorporated these exercises into Aikido's preparatory routines.

The core principle of these exercises is the simple yet profound movement of "raising and lowering" the hip joints. Beloved by martial artists worldwide, these exercises are integrated into daily practices, often unknowingly, bringing tangible benefits.
