"a wonderful perspective that challenges us to meet aggression with harmony, and see it as an opportunity to evolve"

Youth program

"We strive to introduce the elements of harmonious interaction, creative conflict resolution, and positive confidence in oneself"


"a process of self-discovery and exploration beyond what we think we already know"


"Within the framework of Aikido training, yoga, meditation and discussion the uchideshi steps on a path of their own self discovery and self expression, freeing themselves from conditioned patterns."


"it is possible to discover a natural state of being, free from the definitions of personal history, limited self image, and future projection"
