From one to three....now, three to one
Many changes have taken place since the inception of aiki.com as the selling arm for Aikido Today Magazine products. The magazine published successfully for 20 years (100 issues) as a division of Arete Press and with much fanfare closed the publication of ATM in 2005.
Under Arete Press, Aiki.com also published many Aiki efforts founded by two energetic and dedicated professors: the late Ronald Rubin and his wife and partner in adventure -
Susan Perry. So, from Arete Press there was born Aiki.com, Aiko Institute and Bright Moon Studio.
Arete Press, the first of their institutes still exists (as does aiki.com). Aiko Institute, a non-profit educational institute, took over the Aikido classes offered by Musubi Dojo in 2014 as the dojo closed upon the death of Dr. Ronald Rubin. Aiko added to its Aikido offerings classes in Philosophy and Zen Brush. Bright Moon Studio is the workhouse of Susan Perry's artistic creations. She has been known to offer mountain workshops in Sword, Receptive Landscaping, and in Zen Brush.
BUT NOW these three powerhouses share a single website pared down due to the pandemic but ready to add functions as the world opens up in 2021.
