Non-violent Martial Arts for the Whole Family
What is Aikido?
Aikido (the way of spirit harmony) develops the power of the mind and body working in concert, emphasizing the use of blending and awareness rather than force and resistance. As a defensive martial art, Aikido techniques rely on a calm mind, relaxed body and accurate positioning rather than strength and size. As well as being an effective self defense, Aikido is a healthful exercise, a moving meditation, and an enjoyable work-out for students of all ages. At Triangle Aikido, experienced instructors provide training in a safe and supportive atmosphere, offering a constructive way for adults and children to use their energy more peacefully and effectively.
Family classes teach kids and parents to resolve conflict without violence while building body awareness and coordination, teaching respect and discipline, fostering sensitivity and self-confidence, and having fun – without punching, kicking or screaming!
Please come watch a class! Visitors are always welcome in our dojo.

"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. You are here for no other purpose than to realize your inner divinity and manifest your innate enlightenment. Foster peace in your own life and then apply the Art to all that you encounter." -- Morihei Ueshiba
