After training in Verbal Aikido I was empowered to approach conflictual situations serenely. I am no longer afraid to dialogue with people who attack me verbally. Before I had no idea how resolve a conflict, but that was before!”

Verbal Aikido is a very powerful and useful approach in everyday life, in contexts where we feel aggression against us.

My motivation for pursuing Verbal Aikido is the self-mastery of redirecting these verbal conflict skirmishes without harming someone with my own words.
