Current Projects > Peace Dojos International
A Peace Dojo incorporates non-martial art practices which teach physical and verbal skills; and/or outreach peacemaking projects in the greater community; and/or intellectual studies of conflict and conflict resolution.
A Peace Dojo engages in rigorous and deliberate training practices to
develop the capacity for skillful, healing action and the courage of
heart needed to face the fear and violence in oneself and in the world.
When Aiki Extensions began in 1998 there was only the Bronx Peace Dojo model. Ten years later, several martial arts are focusing on conflict resolution training and have begun to collaborate through Aiki Extensions. For example, Aiki Extensions just welcomed Peacemakers (Goshen, IN), and new member, the Rev. Steve Thomas (Mennonite), a Tae Kwon Do instructor. Danny Hakim, a Karate instructor in Israel, was part of the team that crafted the Peace Dojo definition.
