Onegaishimasu!

We welcome your interest in learning about the art of Aikido. Simply put, Aikido is the study of the way of spiritual harmony. It is at once an extremely effective form of self-defense, and yet balanced with an equally profound spiritual path of peaceful reconciliation with humanity.

Our school welcomes you as a unique individual suitable for training irrespective of your background, skills, or athletic ability. As Suenaka Sensei states, all students are encouraged to practice at a pace that indicates a sincere desire to learn and grow.

The journey of studying the art of Aikido is challenging, life-long, and rewarding. Individuals from all walks of life from young to old study Aikido for the numerous health and spiritual benefits such as increased self-awareness and centeredness which is developed through rigorous practice. It is often true that through the rigorous study of a martial art we learn as much about ourselves as the art we study. Through the study of Aikido we learn positive strategies to harmoniously resolve conflict in our daily lives.

Visitors are always welcome and encouraged to stop in to observe. Better yet, why not step on the mat and join us!

I want to build bridges everywhere and connect all people through harmony and love. This I believe to be the task of aikido.
