Welcome! This is the official website of the Ki Society and its dojos in Europe. We study and teach oneness of mind and body and oneness with the universe through the five disciplines of the Ki Society – as they were designed by its founder Soshu Koichi Tohei Sensei (1920-2011) and are now taught by his son and successor Kaicho Shinichi Tohei Sensei.
Through the practice of Ki-Aikido (Shinshin Toitsu Aikido), Ki-Meditation, Ki-Breathing, Kiatsu and Sokushin no Gyo we learn to realize the full human potential we naturally have. This is applicable in all aspects of our daily lives, and so it is eagerly practiced by people whose fields are in management, art, sports, education and many others…

In proud and loving memory
On behalf of the Europe Ki Federation, I would like to convey our condolences to all students, friends and family of Kenjiro Yoshigasaki Sensei (1951-2021).
The first time my dad and I met Yoshigasaki sensei, I was about 11 years old. I was really proud to just be able to be and train with such a great teacher. During my formative years his teachings and example played a major role in how I would see life and deal with the different situations I was faced with in my young adult life. Training with a teacher that allowed you to develop in your own way was always fun and inspiring, resulting in a highlight, recording All of Aikido. Unfortunately, shortly after the recordings life presented different paths and so we went our own ways, taking what he taught with us on our journey. I believe everyone who ever met sensei is still proud and grateful to have been able to be or to train with such a great teacher who touched so many people’s lives and in doing so is still around…
Europe Ki Federation
- 11.1.2021: Sunday night a lot of members of the Europe Ki Federation and Aikidoka from all over the world were able to participate in the Kagamibiraki and first class of the year. Through Zoom the whole world was connected and able to join this special ceremony and training live from HQ in Tokyo. During the ceremony Kaicho Shinichi Tohei sensei also read the names of all students who were granted a promotion. Of course we would like to congratulate everyone who received a promotion, and we look forward to training again with you via Zoom and if possible physically.The most important thing is that we maintain the Ki-Connection!
