About our dojo

Seattle Aikikai is a community-led dojo dedicated to facilitating personal mastery through the practice of the martial art of Aikido. Our goal is to preserve the history and the spirit of the art and to refine our practice of it to ensure that Aikido is personally relevant to our membership. We provide world-class training opportunities to challenge and support our members. Our dojo is affiliated with Aikikai Hombu Dojo in Tokyo, Japan and has been part of the Seattle community since 1997. We are a non-profit 501(c)3 organization.

"The Art of Peace begins with you. Work on yourself and your appointed task in the Art of Peace. Everyone has a spirit that can be refined, a body that can be trained in some manner, a suitable path to follow."
