Art of Suikido

Welcome to this page about the eclectic original practices of Suikido 水気道

Suikido is a multifaceted living body-of-knowledge and interdisciplinary synergistic practice of naturalistic ways to Move, Heal, Nourish, and Purify.

The name Suikido consists of the 3 characters:
(Sui), (Ki), (Do).

Sui denotes a quality of suppleness and fluidity

Ki represents the dynamics of energy and life-in-motion

Do reflects a path, a way, a process

About Suikido

Suikido signifies a fusion of universal principles for man-, energy-, and life-in-motion.

It denotes a coming-together of martial and yogic art; natural flow movement; holistic body treatment and re-balancing therapy; plant sourced nutrition and nutritional therapy; synergistic and therapeutic herbology; integrated refinement practices and purification protocols. 

Within Suikido there is essentially two distinct kinds of applied knowledge; an “Outer” tangible and an “Inner” intangible. 

In practice there is no separation; everything interconnects and intertwine.

Origin of Suikido

From a Realm of Exquisite Natural Beauty,

organic intelligence, sentient awareness,

and being; the Original Pristine Earth lives

and shines forth in all Its splendor.

This Primordial Celestial Body flows and

communicates through the diverse and

multilayered landscape of the Natural World.

It expresses itself through a Motion of Endless

Creativity, a language of Originality;

Its essence is that of Life becoming.

This is the Origin of Suikido.

Skillfullness is a continuous process

Imitating is not learning

Repetition does not exist

Every act is the last act

There is no second chance

Life is sacred live as such

This is the Seal of Suikido.

Suikido Dojo is a dynamic practice, research, and integrated knowledge Centre in the Algarve Region, South Portugal.

Suikido is an integral part of the “Inner Peace Forest Retreat”; a small community, Eco-farm, and Earth-school project.

We teach and work with people from all walks and ways of life; from health challenged individuals to vibrantly wholesome people; from sedentary office workers to elite and professional athletes.

Humanity has left the magical realm of the unknown and the mysterious. Instead, Man has settled down in the comfortability of the known and predictable; actively ensuring the on-going creation of a habitual, robotic world of conformity and control.

By way of this act, Man willfully shuns a life of feeling, intensity, freedom, depth.
