    Default Robert Koga (Koga Institute)

    Retired Law Enforcement Detective Robert K. Koga died at the age of 83 in Fallbrook, California, due to cancer.

    Mr. Koga served in the US Air Force, then joined a major law enforcement agency in the City of Los Angeles, where he developed a revolutionary Aikido-based arrest and control system. During his lifetime his system was taught across the US, Canada, Mexico, Japan, and China. His teachings are being preserved by the "Koga Institute".

    A public celebration of his life will take place on November 2nd, 2013.

    Although I never knew him personally, his name is one that I've heard many times, and his teachings created an important foundation for Western law enforcement arrest and control methods.

    May he rest in peace,

    "Put strength into your practice, and avoid conceit. It is easy enough to understand a strategy and guard against it after the matter has already been settled, but the reason an opponent becomes defeated is because they didn't learn of it ahead of time. This is the nature of secret matters. That which is kept hidden is what we call the Flower."
