About Aikido Journal

ABOUT US
For 44 years, Aikido Journal has been an authoritative champion of the martial art of aikido. Founded in 1974 by Stanley Pranin as Aiki News, Aikido Journal has created and published the world’s most extensive collection of aikido media and research. We've also produced landmark events for the aikido community. After Stanley Pranin's passing in 2017, the journal was reborn. We’ve built a team and developed a content-creation pipeline to restore and republish old articles and research, as well as feature new stories.

WHY WE NEED YOUR HELP
We have an enormous responsibility to preserve and disseminate the research and storytelling produced by the journal over the last 44 years. We also have new stories to tell that inspire, inform, and connect those who follow the path of Budo. 

This major undertaking requires resources. We need production staff, tools, and operating funds to produce new content and restore and republish content from our vast archive. We'll use patron funds to create new articles, podcasts, and videos, as well as restore and republish important work from the Aikido Journal archives.

Unlock the Archives: Release 100 Articles

Aikido Journal has a vast collection of articles and interviews, many of which have been behind the paywall of the old Aikido Journal Members site. All of these articles need to be cleaned up and restored before they are republished. They contain broken links, missing images, and ads for products that no longer exist. 

We've already restored and republished many articles but it's a very resource-intensive project. With 100 Patrons, we will use patron funding to restore and republish an additional 100 articles from our archives onto our publicly accessible website.
