Welcome to Kiku Matsu Dojo

Established in 2005, Kiku Matsu Dojo serves as the headquarters of the Aikido World Alliance (AWA), offering high-quality training in the Japanese martial art of Aikido.  Our dojo also hosts the Chicago Buddhist Meditation Group.

We have classes 7 days a week and on-going students may attend as many classes as they like. Those who would like to get a taste of Aikido are invited to take our 4-week introductory course.
