Orange County Ki Society

The Orange County Ki Society was established in 1984 to spread Ki Principles and Shin Shin Toitsu Aikido as taught by Master Koichi Tohei.

Located in Southern Orange County, California, we provide a traditional Japanese dojo training environment for students of all ages and abilities. The programs are led by highly skilled instructors with 15 to 40 years of experience. All instructors are certified by the Ki Society and receive ongoing instruction to stay current and maintain certification.

Master Tohei, the Founder of the Ki Society, passed away in 2011 at the age of 91. His son, Shinichi Tohei Sensei, presides at headquarters in Japan. The Orange County Ki Society is associated with Ki Society H.Q. in Japan thru our relationship with the Northwest Ki Federation.
