We can learn and practice new skills to change the way we handle conflict and the way we live.

Aikido and Conflict: Getting on the Mat

This is a program for kinesthetic learners who like to immerse themselves in the educational experience. You will go to an Aikido “dojo” (place of practice), learn how to blend with an attack – both physical and verbal – and practice applying Aikido principles to everyday workplace conflicts.


To provide an “out-of-the-box” training experience combining Aikido, communication and conflict management.


  • Appreciate the relationship between how we deal with a physical attack and the way we deal with pressure and conflict at work.
  • Change resistance into flow and reaction into conscious response.
  • Increase presence and options under pressure.
  • Apply “on-the-mat” experiences to communication and conflict resolution.
