A dynamic, non-competitive martial art.

        Cultivate mind-body agility and grace.

Aikido is a dynamic martial art for self-defence and self-development. Aikido literally means the way of harmonizing universal energy. It's great whole-body exercise and so much more. A training for body and mind, that both grounds and opens us, to a compassionate and authentic way of relating to each other and the world.

"Aiki is not a technique to fight with or defeat an enemy. It is a way to reconcile the world." Morihei Ueshiba founder of Aikido                                                                                                            

Our dojo is in Saanich, BC, on the unceded territory of the W̱SÁNEĆ nation.

About our dojo

Dojo literally means the place to train in the Way. For us it also means the community we co-create, supporting each other in our growth and learning, on the mats and off.

What is Aikido?

Founded by Morihei Ueshiba in Japan. Designed for spiritual development and self-defence. It is a whole body work-out, making use of timing and alignment rather than physical strength and size. A practice to help free the body and mind.
