Learn the Art of Aikido in a Safe, Friendly Environment

Aikido is a traditional Japanese martial art created by Morihei Ueshiba (O-Sensei) in the early 20th Century. The practice promotes self defense while also seeking to avoid serious injury to the attacker. Aikido techniques utilize specific body movements and strikes to neutralize an attack, usually ending with a throw, pin, or joint lock.

Our dojo provides its students with the best physical and mental discipline in Central New York. Through regular practice, you can expect improvements in agility, coordination, flexibility, focus, and awareness.

We have incredible instructors, a wide variety of classes, and friendly, talented students. Everyone works together and learns from each other.

Call us or drop an email if you have any questions or want to get started. You can also visit with us at the dojo: swing by and observe a class, or join us risk-free on the mat.
