Class are being held Monday and Wednesday evenings from 7 to 8:30 and Saturday mornings from 9 to 11.
Students attending Monday and Wednesday evening classes have been fully vaccinated. We ask all those wishing to join to get vaccinated. This not only offers protection, but shows respect for fellow students and the dojo. Masks are not required if fully vaccinated, but students may wear them if them choose.
Pay us a visit and learn more about Shin Shin Toitsu Aikido. It differs from many other styles of Aikido by demonstrating how the power of the mind influences the body and makes techniques more flowing and powerful. So practice is not only good for the body, but the mind as well.
Come and watch a class or take a free class. Ask plenty of questions. We have a welcoming and friendly atmosphere. Aikido helps us live in harmony, not only with others, but ourselves, as we learn how thoughts and feelings affect our movements and our daily lives. The goal is not to harm others or gratify one’s ego.

Our teaching philosophy: “Spare no effort when you teach. You advance as your students advance. Do not be impatient when you teach. No one can learn everything well at one time. Perseverance is important in teaching, as are patience, kindness and the ability to put yourself in your students’ place.” – Tohei Sensei.
