5th dan Aikikai

A mind to serve for the peace of all human beings in the world is needed in Aikido, and not the mind of one who wishes to be strong or who practices only to defeat an opponent.

Please come by if you would like to watch class and talk to us about Aikido training. Just let us know you are coming. You will have to check in at the front desk of HiFi Fitness and they will direct you to our room (Studio 2).

Dojo Etiquette

Like all martial arts, etiquette is an important way to ensure safe and effective practice for all participants. Learning the etiquette is a part of training, but please read our etiquette section before coming to class.


In Aikido we use Japanese terminology for techniques, forms, attacks, and stances. If you already speak Japanese, you should find these terms very easy to understand, but if you don't, check out our glossary for some translations.
