Morihei Ueshiba - O Sensei - The Founder of Aikido

"The art of peace begins with you. Work on yourself and your task in the art of peace. Everyone has a spirit that can be refined, a body that can be trained in some manner, a suitable path to follow. You are here for no other purpose than to realize your sanctity and manifest your inner enlightenment. Foster peace in your own life, and then apply the art to all that you encounter."

Morihei Ueshiba "O-Sensei"
Founder of Aikido

Sign up for trial classes!

We'll contact you to schedule your first class. Any remaining classes have to be attended within two weeks.
