A message from Dojo-cho to people interested in beginning Aikido

Aikido is not an easy martial art.  However, it is accessible to anyone who has a desire to train.  During your practice you will go through high and low points, at times you will feel overjoyed and fulfilled.  At other times you will feel exhausted.  Whichever the case, as you walk along Aikido’s “path” you will have countless eye-opening encounters, learn about your own self, and refine your ability to judge and make decisions.

Through the practice of of Aikido, it is possible to experience the process of personal growth in harmony with others and your surroundings.
