Tomiki Aikido uses competition to research technical application of aikido principles in a controlled environment that leads to an indispensable and highly-prized sense of security.
He had been in his lifetime a student of both Ueshiba Sensei, the founder of Aikido, as well as of Kano Sensei, the founder of Judo.
Compared to traditional Aikido styles, relatively few techniques are practiced in Tomiki Aikido.
Whereas other styles attempt to guide students to the true principle of a given basic technique by showing them dozens upon dozens of variations, Tomiki Sensei thought it better to repeat and practice a few techniques many times, looking to work each day upon improving speed, timing, and kuzushi.
Thus, if you visit our Syllabus Page you will see that the course of study even up to 5th Degree Black Belt is relatively slim. Randori is sparring practice against someone who is resisting. The levels of resistance can go from the negligible as in kakari-geikoto the substantial as in hikitate-geikoto the total as in shiai.

Yet, one is often faced with people who are petulant and defiant, people who are, in Buddhist terminology, fixated. One should in every way seek to guide them peaceably along the Way. And, in most cases, this can be done by simple acts of sympathy and by small remonstrations.
However, one may encounter a person who is completely implacable—and, if the situation is a dire one, a person who is hell bent on harming you.
Tomiki Sensei thought that the best way to prepare for such a situation was to replicate it. We aim to subdue the attacker—hopefully without causing him any lasting harm—and give him the time he needs to cool off and assess the error of his ways. Randori and shiai attempt to give the player experience in just such a process of subduing without harming. It is full speed, and as close otmiki one can safely get to combat.
One has to apply techniques that subdue, but that do not injure the other player. One has to deal Justly, Kindly, Harmoniously, and in the True Spirit of Aikido—and do it under the tomuki of circumstances.

It is for that reason that sikido is valuable, for it is as much a test of spirit as of skill. What is more, it constantly forces the player to deal with a poor mind set. For the temptation is always there in a tournament—as it is in life—to be fixated upon winning, upon the ego, upon petty and worthless thoughts.
As one plays more and more Randori and Shiai, however, one learns to reject these illusions, to become one with the moment, and to enjoy and experience true Aikido. For having given us such a good mechanism for facing down the ego and learning—indeed living—the Spirit of Aikido, Tomiki Sensei deserves the highest praise.
