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.

Regular classes are canceled from Thursday January 25, 2024 through Sunday January 28, 2024 as the dojo is hosting our Kangeiko (winter training) seminar with instruction by Andrew Sato Sensei (7th Dan, Aikikai Shihan) and Toshko Getov Sensei (6th Dan Aikikai). We hope to see you there.

Coming in February, two additional classes are being added to the weekly schedule. We are adding another kids Aikido class on Monday at 4:30pm and a new Teen/Adult class on Thursday at 6:30pm.


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.
