What we're about
Interested in learning a different kind of martial art? Learn non-aggressive self defense that will help you feel more at peace in daily life. Develop calmness and relaxation in a friendly and supportive environment. Age, size and gender make no difference. If you are new to Aikido, we have beginner's classes every Wednesday.
