"HEA is committed to aikido’s values of making a better world through assisting and giving to others. The primary purpose of aikido is to improve a person, allow one to find something deeper in themselves and life. It must also be able to be used as an effective, efficient martial art exactly as the Founder of Aikido taught it."
