Programs

Our dojo offers two distinct programs for membership consisting of a Adults and Children & Teen Programs. Each program is lead by a team of instructors and supported by membership, of which support the dojo’s mission and operating and maintenance costs. As a non-profit dojo, our instructors are passionate about the mission of Aikido, their practice, and continued growth in developing their skill, knowledge, and wisdom.

Lineage

Our programs are guided by direct lineage transmission from the founder of Aikido, Morihei Ueshiba, to Mitsugi Saotome Shihan, to our instructors. This unbroken chain of transmission is very important in our art, and is granted recognition by the Ueshiba family supported organization, the Aikikai Foundation in Tokyo, Japan. Saotome Shihan is dedicated to supporting and honoring the Ueshiba family, as well as the members of our dojo.
