Aikido, the art of peace, or the way of harmony with the universe, is a non-competitive martial art practiced by people of all ages and all physical abilities around the world.

Aikido’s founder, Morihei Ueshiba, said, “Aiki is not an art to fight with or to defeat an enemy.  It is a way in which to harmonize all people into one family.”

 Aikido of the San Juans is a member of Takemusu Aikido Association, which is recognized as a qualified aikido organization by Hombu Dojo in Tokyo, Japan.
