KoKoDo JuJutsu and Shiatsu make KoKoDo a complete and true budo system; allowing its students and practitioners to protect and defend from enemies both inside and outside the body.
There are many forms of Shiatsu however in general terms it is a Japanese therapy that traces its origin to ancient Chinese medical traditions. KKD Shiatsu combines the knowledge of western anatomy and physiology with the holistic approach of eastern medicine.
Shiatsu aims to release and regulate the energy known as ‘Ki’ or ‘life force’, which flows through the meridian network (energy channels) running throughout the body.
This results in nourishing internal organs, muscles, hormones, nerves and blood activating the body’s natural ability to restore itself to a state of balance. Any imbalance in this energy network can lead to fatigue, pain and illness, which is why Shiatsu is most effective on a regular basis.
