About Chicago Ki Aikido

The Chicago Ki Society was organized in 1975 at the University of Chicago.  Chicago Ki Aikido is affiliated with the Chicago Ki Society and the International Ki Society (Shin Shin Toitsu Aikido or aikido with mind and body coordination).  We are the only public Ki Society club in the Chicago area.
