Our Aikido program seeks to create a culture of respect and friendliness while maintaining a seriousness of training.  Students, under the guidance of instructors and senior students, learn from one another though training together.  In addition to training, we all contribute to the health of the dojo through sharing our time and effort according to our abilities, which may include teaching, website upkeep, marketing, and simple dojo maintenance.  Based on a collective model, we find that through training and sharing our time together, our lives are enhanced.  This is our vision of our community here at Seattle School of Aikido. 

We invite you to come visit the dojo and personally share our vision and training.

No Sunday morning classes until further notice

Well time has flown by this year for me, i can't believe it's already summer.  There are a lot of vacations planned for a lot of folks this summer, hopefully we can all still be available to train!

There will unfortunately be no Sunday morning classes until further notice.  We (the instructors) are working out the details of our life schedules, and will hopefully be able to offer that class again as soon as possible.

There are still adult Aikido classes Monday, Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday.

Thanks for your patience,

- John

Wednesday Night Classes!

After consulting with more members of the dojo, it's come to the conclusion that is is better to hold off on starting Wednesday night classes to coincide with the start of the next beginners series. Sorry for the short notice. I hope everyone understands the decision and we hope to have members of Aikido, Icho ryu, and new students taking part.  So, speaking for all of us in Icho Ryu, we hope to see old and new faces on the mat
