AIKIDO – A Japanese Martial Art with its roots in the ancient Samurai traditions. The Founder (Ueshiba Morihei O-Sensei) formulated this Martial Art with the intense desire to bring about change in the world. 99% of all Martial Arts are designed with one objective; Defeat the enemy! Period!

Aikido is a Martial Art first but it is also a “Mirror” that says “Take a good long look” you may not likewhat you see at first but you can remedy that in the Dojo.
