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.

Plan now to watch our demonstration on July 4th, more details to follow.

Also, please stop by our booth at Square Roots Festival July 12-14.


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.
