What We Do

Traditional Aikido

We are a member of the United States Aikido Federation (USAF) and the International Aikido Federation (IAF) under the direct supervision of Shihan Yoshimitsu Yamada. The USAF is a non-profit educational institution created for the purpose of spreading and maintaining the integrity of the Japanese martial art of Aikido, as exemplified and developed by its Founder, Master Morihei Ueshiba, and as disseminated by the Aikikai Foundation, Aikido Hombu Dojo, the Aikido World Headquarters in Tokyo, Japan. The IAF is a federation of aikido organizations which are directly affiliated to the Aikikai Hombu in Japan.

The main aims of the USAF are to develop and guide the practice and instruction of Aikido as established by Hombu, to promote and develop good will, fellowship and lines of communication among its members, to standardize gradings, to register dan (senior level) grades with Hombu, and to establish and maintain close contact with the Shihan (master teachers) officially dispatched as representatives by Hombu.

Aikido for the Family

Our Aikido curriculum includes our Aikido for the Family Program. This program takes our traditional Aikido and extends it to integrate the whole family into training sessions rather than separating the children.

Cane Self Defense & Aiki-Cane
The walking cane. So simple, yet so incredibly effective.

Literally one of the only self-defense tools that can be carried openly through most security, including schools, airports and government buildings.

Koryu Weapons - Jodo and Iaido

We hold regular training sessions in Shindo Muso Ryu Jodo and Muso Shinden Ryu Iaido. These are "old school" style, weapons training. The training sessions are not open to general attendance. If you are interested please contact our Chief Instructor.
