What we're about

Looking for something new? Something different? Want more Japanese Culture? Don't enjoy conflict, but want to be able to stand your ground? This Aikido group is for you!

This group is for anyone who's interested in trying out an Aikido class! Aikido is a traditional Japanese martial art with roots in samurai sword and manners. It stresses harmony and peaceful conflict resolution, appropriate for today's society. All ages and abilities are welcome. Aikido is adaptable for everyone.

Aside from being fun, it helps with posture, flexibility, cardio, balance, situational awareness, and stability--especially training to fall without getting hurt. The techniques are practiced with one another in a cooperative environment in order to understand and improve; we grow together!

For those interested in Japanese culture, Aikido also places emphasis on traditions and customs, as well as history. The school is a beautiful bridge between Japanese tradition and the modern American lifestyle.

Don't be shy! Join us today!

Try something new! Japanese Martial Arts Meetup (Aikido)

Aikido North Jersey

This is our first "join us on the mat" event. Join us Thursday, September 19th at 6:15 for an hour-long Aikido class. Class starts at 6:30 but we suggest a little earlier to get acclimated with the school. No uniform needed. Just sweatpants and a t-shirt is fine. Also, all levels are welcome, no prior martial arts experience necessary! There's no cost for this meetup. Have a friend who wants to come? Bring them too! Each person will get a private hands-on experience as well as an opportunity to feel what a regular aikido class is like. Parking is available on the street and in the lot across the street from the school. Any questions feel free to reach out to me!
