Our Aikido


Aikido is the perfect martial art for the twenty-first century. It gives its practitioners abilities and tools needed to deal with the complexity and pressure of daily modern life. Conflict is regarded as opportunity to be faced with a steadfast spirit and a calm demeanor. These concepts are achieved by a practice that does not rely on competition as a gauge of worth but on the development of the human mind, body, and spirit in an atmosphere of cooperative training.

Our Facility


Our facility is owned and operated by our members. It has 2200 square feet of mat space in a 3700 square foot free standing building with bathrooms and showers in the dressing rooms.
