* Parental/guardian participation is required. No prior Ki Aikido experience necessary. Mom, dad or any responsible adult, designated by the parent(s), may join.

Boulder Ki Aikido (BKA) provides personalized attention for children of all ages and abilities in a safe, supportive and welcoming environment.

Husband, father of three, business professional in the fields of branding, marketing, design, and entrepreneur, Villacorta Sensei began his practice of Shin Shin Toitsu Aikido in the spring of 1993, under the tutelage of Russell Smith Sensei (5th dan), while attending Colorado State University in Fort Collins.

“I first became interested in martial arts because I wanted a solid discipline to develop my character and a way to feel confident in defending myself. Due to its circular, fluid and effective techniques that harnessed the energy of my opponent, Ki Aikido quickly became a perfect fit.”

Throughout his training, Villacorta Sensei has studied under the guidance of several high-ranking instructors across various styles of Aikido, including week-long immersive seminars and weekend workshops with Shinichi Tohei SenseiDavid Shaner SenseiMorihiro Saito SenseiShinichi Suzuki SenseiChristopher Curtis SenseiRobert Koga SenseiRussell Jones Sensei, and Lael Keen Sensei, among others.


Villacorta Sensei has a genuine dedication for inspiring students of all ages to discover their true inner power and to live life positively. “Over time, this art has become a spiritual path for me. I remain a lifelong student of this profound art by training primarily under the guidance of Kashiwaya Sensei.”
